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.

The CDS contains general information about the University, enrollment and persistence, admission, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, faculty and class size, degrees offered and awarded, and list of majors.
