Common Data Sets

The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaborate effort between publishers and the educational community. The goal of the CDS is to improve the quality and accuracy of data provided to collaborators like the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. It is also to reduce the reporting burden on data providers at higher education institutions like the OIRA. Provided on this page is the CDS report for each academic year listed.
