Listed below is the NSF CIP Code Crosswalk for STEM disciplines. Note: The codes have been modified to be more aligned with the codes as listed in IPEDs and expanded to include disciplines/majors at community colleges.
All STEM disciplines reported in WebAMP are classified. Multidisciplinary fields should be consistently reported with the primary degree-granting department. Do not enter an individual in more than one discipline.
Mapping Guide for Revised Discipline Codes
Please consult the IPEDS CIP Code list to find the proper classification for the sub-disciplines.
Example: 40.0510 Forensic Chemistry is a sub-category of 40.05 Chemistry, therefore, Forensic Chemistry would be reported under Physical Sciences.
