The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaborative effort conducted annually to improve the quality and accuracy of information pushed into the public domain and consumed by prospective students. Data are presented in a standardized format following definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate in comparing higher education institutions. It is also used to assist data providers in reporting data to higher education surveys conducted by the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report.
The CDS is divided into sections pertaining to the following subjects: General Information; Enrollment and Persistence; Admissions, Academic Offerings and Policies; Student Life; Annual Expenses; Financial Aid; Instructional Faculty and Class Size; and Degrees Conferred.
