Introduction

The Texas CIP codes are used to identify degree and certificate programs, courses, and declared majors on the reports and inventories of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The first six digits of each code are identical to those in the taxonomy A Classification of Instructional Programs published by the National Center for Educational Statistics. The seventh and eighth digits are the Texas suffixes which identify the CIP codes created to identify the diversity of courses and program offerings in Texas. The two digits following the CIP code are the formula funding code.

If you cannot find a code below, check in the listing of codes that were deleted in 2000. This listing gives the current codes for those that are no longer valid.
