About the ICAT

The Survey of Earned Doctorates (SED) Institution Contact Administrative Tool (ICAT) contains information necessary for Institution Contacts (ICs) to administer the SED on their campus. ICs can obtain survey materials to distribute to graduating research doctorates, transmit SED forms, and maintain contact information for key personnel responsible for SED administration.

The ICAT allows ICs to access, download, and upload the various forms and files used in administering the SED in one location. The ICAT also includes information on the survey and how to administer the SED at your institution.


The 2019 SED cycle is now available!
