Colleges and University Compliance Project Questionnaire: Selecting Institutional Description

Question 1 asks us to check a box that best describes our college or university, but more than one description applies to our institution. How do we know which one to select?

If you are a public institution and received a determination letter indicating that you are exempt from Federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), check box “e” regardless of which other boxes might describe your institution.  Otherwise, check the box next to the description that you believe most completely describes your institution.  Except as described in question 1, do not check box “h,” “other” if one of the other boxes describes your institution.
