Common Data Set

The Common Data Set is an effort by the publishers of four major college guidebooks: The College Board, Peterson's, U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen Orchard House to use a standard set of questions and definitions as the basis of their surveys and reports.
The purpose of the Common Data Set is to create a more efficient external data reporting process by minimizing both the redundancy of information provided for reports and the number of data requests.
For Common Data Sets prior to 2005-2006, please contact the Office of Institutional Research and Planning at 502-852-6169.
