Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a joint effort between the higher education community and publishers to improve the quality and consistency of data reported by colleges and universities. The information provided by the CDS include general information, enrollment and persistence, admissions, academic offering and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, instructional faculty, class size, and degrees conferred. The goal of this initiative is to develop standards for use in higher education surveys.

Fact Book

The Stanislaus State Fact Book is an annual compilation of university data with the purpose of serving as a resource to the university community as well as the public at large. All data contained in the Fact Book reflects official fall census data and contains many of the common data definitions put forth by the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Survey (IPEDS). The information in the Fact Book can be used for federal and state reporting, grant documentation, classroom assignments, and for strategic planning.
