Follow the instructions if you want to …

- Do your own data recoding and aggregation for IPEDS submission
- Get help converting your data into a key-value pair format
- Get help combining parts with different numbers of columns

If you want the package to help you with aggregation and (some) recoding, look at the “setup” vignettes for supported uploads

*Note: the produce_other_report function can be used
to prepare any key-value pair file for an automated submission process
(IPEDS or non-IPEDS)*

**Download/Open the IPEDS Import Spec**for a particular survey and institution-type on the IPEDS Survey Materials instructions page.*Between reporting cycles, this page may be down: consult the archive to see previous specs.***Use the “Key Value Pair File” instructions**to prep your data. This will be the second part of the document; the first part is for fixed-width files.**Create one dataframe for each survey part**using the exact IPEDS FieldIDs as column names and using only the values described in the table of specs and the additional information in the file’s appendix (scroll down). Follow the same order of columns and parts.**Use the package function**with your files.`produce_other_report`

*If you need assistance understanding what goes into the upload
file, contact IPEDS for advice.*

For a school WITH the ability to report “Another Gender” in the
2023-2024 reporting cycle

*Read code comments in Part B for changes to make if you cannot
report “Another Gender”*

This provides a start-to-finish example of preparing an admissions submission based on sample data. Always check your results after you upload your txt file to the IPEDS submission portal.
