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 administrative purposes. See Office of Budgets and Fiscal Planning.
It is necessary to include a CIP code 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 New Program proposal).
