Does anybody know why are some schools not showing up on the College Scorecard (https://collegescorecard.ed.gov) recently released by the Obama administration? For example, why isn't Gateway Community & Technical College in Kentucky showing up?
At the present time, the Scorecard site is limited to institutions that predominantly grant 2-year and/or 4-year degrees. The Department of Education is exploring whether and how to add predominantly less-than-two-year schools that offer associate’s or bachelor’s degree programs to the site in future iterations of Scorecard.
I believe Brian is correct, but also note that this criteria appears to be arbitrary and undocumented. One result is that only 6 of 13 community colleges in Colorado are included in the Scorecard. http://mfeldstein.com/17-of-community-colleges-are-not-included-in-college-scorecard/
