Submitting CIP Code Changes
Institutions who require a change to the CIP code of a program from the current code to a new code based on the institutions determination that the new CIP code better matches the program may email firstname.lastname@example.org providing the program inventory record. The email should include the program and award level, current CIP code, institution name, and program name as currently listed in the program inventory maintained on OSHE's website, along with a clear indication of the requested new CIP code to replace the current CIP code. Note, this is not to add a new program to the inventory but rather just simply to change the CIP code. Furthermore, OSHE has a process to update CIP codes every time the CIP manual changes (roughly every 10 years, with a possibly 5 year cycle to be implemented to the US Department of Education). This update process is not to be used for those wholesale changes/updates to the CIP manual/listing. This process is to be used for when a current program finds an existing CIP code as more representative of the program than the code that was originally established.
