Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaborative effort between the higher education community (U.S. Colleges and Universities) and publishers such as the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report.

Colleges and Universities report admissions, enrollment and student aid data in a standardized (CDS) format.

Common Data Set information can often be found through Internet search (e.g. Google name of institution and common data set)
