Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.

Sections within the CDS include enrollment and persistence, first-time and transfer admission, academic offerings, student life, expenses, financial aid, faculty and class size, and degrees conferred.
