Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborate effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers. 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.

The CDS contains data on topics such as admissions, enrollment, retention, classes, activities, policies, and costs for each contributing institution.
