Community College Data Reporting
Community College Data Reporting consists of a number of data sets collected annually to reflect most of the Iowa community colleges activities. Iowa community colleges report student enrollment, coursework, awards, college human resources and financial data. This data reporting is mandated by the state law to serve informational, accountability, research and reference needs for a variety of users, from policy-makers to researchers, educational administrators, educators, media and general public.
The Accounting Manual is prepared by the Department of Education to assist community colleges in reporting data. It is revised on an as needed basis and includes information on the proper coding of the accounting functions on the community college information system. Any changes to the manuals are communicated to the community colleges by the Department of Education.
