 Common Data Set 



The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort between publishers and the educational community , developed to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. The CDS provides a common format for supplying information to publishers such as the College Board, Peterson’s and U.S. News & World Report.  The data reported for the CDS are based upon fall semester information and are contained in lettered tabs which are as follows:

CDS-A:  General information
CDS-B:  Enrollment and persistence
CDS-C:  First-Time, first-year freshman admission
CDS-D:  Transfer admission
CDS-E:  Academic offerings and policies
CDS-F:  Student life
CDS-G:  Annual expenses
CDS-H:  Financial aid
CDS-I:  Instructional faculty and class size
CDS-J:  Degrees conferred
