Overview & Questions

How we collect this information:

All data comes from our Student Information System (PeopleSoft) and are captured on specific “snapshot” dates. The data is then reviewed for accuracy before being submitted to the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE). Once CPE completes their review of the data, it becomes Official Data and is added to the Factbook.
