The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and college guide publishers as represented by The College Board, Peterson’s – a Thomson Learning Company, U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen/Orchard House. In addition to reducing cost and time by institutional researchers to respond to publishers surveys, the CDS represents a standardization of data elements and definitions across publications thus minimizing conflicting counts and other data irregularities. The CDS contains the following information:

A. General Information        F. Student Life
B. Enrollment and Persistence        G. Annual Expenses
C. First-Time, First-Year Admission        H. Financial Aid
D. Transfer Admission        I. Instructional Faculty and Class Size
E. Academic Offerings and Policies        J. Degrees Conferred
