2015-2016 Common Data Set


The common data set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort between higher education data providers and publishers of data about colleges aimed at improving the quality and accuracy of this information. This goal is attained by the development of clear data standards and definitions. Those who report data for their colleges are urged to abide by these standards when providing information about their institution for CDS items. They are also urged to use the answers to CDS items when they are an appropriate response to the numerous survey requests they receive. (Extracted and paraphrased from the CDS website)

Data Disclaimer: It is important to note that data in the common data set may differ from the data on the institutional facts page (or other data sources) due to differences in definition or differences in timing. If you notice a significant discrepancy, please contact the strategic planning and decision support office for clarification or correction.
