Common Data Set

In this Section

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data
providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the
College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. 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, as
well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. For background information
