Process to Request a Change in CIP Code
If a program’s curriculum is modified to the extent that the original CIP code is no longer the best match for the program, if there is an update to the list of available CIP codes that includes a more appropriate CIP code, or if a department is reevaluating a program’s CIP code and determines there is a code that is more closely aligned with the curriculum, the department may submit a request to change the code. Please follow the institution’s process for requesting a change.
