Common Data Set (CDS)
This Common Date Set is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, part of the Thomson Corporation, and U.S News and World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. Those individuals reporting information on Columbus State University are encouraged to utilize this site. To learn more about the CDS initiative, visit the Common Data Set Initiative.
