The Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) code is a national classification system for all majors, minors, options, and courses. CIP codes are visible in Banner and are used for reporting and budgeting purposes.
It is necessary to include a CIP code on Category I proposals for new programs. The Office of Academic Programs, Assessment, and Accreditation will assign the CIP code at the draft review meeting for new program proposals (see instructions for submitting a Category I proposal).
