Common Data Set

Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) was developed through collaboration among publishers of college guides, colleges and universities, representatives of higher education organizations, high school counselors and the National Center for Education Statistics. Many of the items and definitions in the Common Data Set are being used on the surveys of several major publishers. The goal of CDS is to improve the comparability of data reported by colleges and universities, and to ease each institution's burden by asking questions in a standardized way on numerous surveys.

Since the CDS was created to provide summary survey information, visit Binghamton University's homepage if you are seeking detailed information on admission, financial aid, program offerings, etc.

Areas in RED are our responses.
