The Common Data Set (CDS) represents a joint effort by The College Board, Peterson's, U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen/Orchard House to standardize data definitions and data elements commonly used in surveys of higher education institutions.
The CDS currently includes sections profiling institutions' general information, enrollment and persistence, freshman and transfer admission, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, faculty and class size and degrees conferred. To better understand the data that is being shown, please reference the Common Data Set Definitions listed at the end of each report.
