Common Data Set

The Common Data Set initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in higher education and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's and U.S. News & World Report. The goal is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to everyone involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
