  2011 Common Data Set for Purdue University  
  J. Degrees Conferred  
             
  Purdue answers are in bolded gold, although all options are listed.  
  Degrees conferred between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011  
             
  For each of the following discipline areas, provide the percentage of diplomas/certificates, associate, and bachelor's degrees awarded. To determine the percentage, use majors, not headcount (e.g., students with one degree but a double major will be represented twice). Calculate the percentage from your institution's IPEDS Completions by using the sum of 1st and 2nd majors for each CIP code as the numerator and the sum of the Grand Total by 1st Majors and the Grand Total by 2nd major as the denominator. If you prefer, you can compute the percentages using 1st majors only.
