The Common Data Set provides college data for the most recent academic year. Data items and definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education in its higher education surveys often serve as a guide in providing this information. Data categories include: enrollment and persistence, admissions, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses and financial aid, instructional faculty, class size and degrees conferred.
