Common Data Sets
The Common Data Set (CDS) is a set of clearly-defined data items developed through collaboration of publishers and higher education. These items are used to share standard information about a college or university, with emphasis on undergraduate education. Information covers data on admissions, enrollment, retention, classes, activities, policies and costs.
For more information about CDS terms, check out the Common Data Set Definitions (PDF).
