o The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) taxonomic coding scheme was developed in 1980 by the National Center for Education Statistics to facilitate the organization, collection, and reporting of fields of study and program completions. The CIP titles and program descriptions are intended to be generic categories into which program completions data can be placed, not exact duplicates of a specific major or field of study titles used by individual institutions. This institution’s programs generally are intended to provide training for occupations associated with multiple CIP codes and each program’s graduates generally occupy a wide variety of positions both following graduation and within a few years. However, the institution is required to choose one CIP code and believes that a code of 52.0302 is a conservative representation of expected entry-level occupations. The institution also is required to list the following occupations (by name and Standard Occupational Classification—or SOC—code) that the O*NET crosswalk identifies as a representative sample of identified, entry-level occupations for completers of a program with a CIP code of 52.0302.
13-2082.00 Tax Preparers
43-3021.01 Statement Clerks
43-3021.02 Billing, Cost, and Rate Clerks
43-3021.03 Billing, Posting, and Calculating Machine Operators
43-3031.00 Bookkeeping, Accounting, and Auditing Clerks
43-3051.00 Payroll and Timekeeping Clerks
43-9111.00 Statistical Assistants
The institution notes that, due to the nature of CIP codes and SOC codes, this list of representative occupations may be expected to comprise a subset of actual graduates’ occupations; further, graduates may or may not work in each of these listed occupations.
