Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS)

The copy of the data on the EFT server for the above survey ends in 2011, but there is evidence that there is something more recent, as shown on

Having examined the available data, the researcher has the following question:
"These provide enrollments by high-level groupings of Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) codes, and what I am after are more fine grained breakdowns, potentially down to individual CIP codes.  Do you know how I would go about gaining access to that finer-grained PSIS enrollment data?"

I've received the following response from subject matter:

"Normal DLI resources for PSIS would not satisfy the request below and a custom request to the CIP-6 level would be far too large to be workable in table format.  I think microdata access is a must for this request.  I am currently investigating possibilities that lie outside the box.  Do you think that the client could qualify for and be able to access an RDC?"

I will let you know if they pass anything else along, however it looks as if the RDCs may be your best bet.
