Freshmen Home Residency shows the home state of first-time, first-year students. Transfer and returning students are not included in the data.
Freshmen home residency data are reported to IPEDS by individual institutions. To ease the burden on individuals responsible for completing IPEDS reporting on behalf of their institutions, reporting of freshmen home residency data is only required every other year.
