What are A-22 and CIP Codes?

A-22 Codes and CIP Codes are used to identify the course you are offering to students. 

A-22 Code: this is a code used by the California Department of Education (CDE) to identify the courses / curriculum you offer. To find this code, refer to your A-22 Course Approval form / document or log into OTAN. The principal or director of the school should have access to this information

CIP Code: this is a code used and developed by the U.S. Department of Education. The CIP code is "Classification of Instructional Programs" from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. The community colleges use this to identify courses offered. If the adult school aligns courses with the community college partners, they can use this to tie them together.

One or both of these codes will be used in CASAS TOPS Enterprise and included in AEBG data reporting such as in Table 10 | Course Characteristics. The codes are moved to TE via the Class Export file.


To add these codes to your course, see this article.
