The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaboration between data providers in the education community and publishers. The goal of this collaboration is to provide quality and accurate information to all those involved in a student’s transition into higher education.
The CDS is organized around 10 topics:
- General information
- Enrollment and persistence
- First-time, first-year admission
- Transfer admission
- Academic offerings and policies
- Student life
- Annual expenses
- Financial aid
- Instructional faculty and class size
- Degrees conferred
