The Postsecondary Programs of Instruction File

A college program can only be submitted once during the course of the project. After the initial LST file upload, consequent uploads for survey periods should only include records to be added to the previous LST files upload.

Upload your Postsecondary Programs of Instruction File in any of the following formats:

  1. Space Delimited Text file,
  2. MS Excel 97-2003 (xls)* or
  3. MS Excel 2007+ (xlsx)*.
