Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) is the result of a national collaboration between publishers and academia to improve and standardize the compiling and reporting of information by academic institutions. This effort is guided in part by practices of the U.S. Department of Education. The Common Data Set includes diverse information on the University of Kentucky, including: enrollments and degrees conferred, a profile of first-year students, statistics and policies on transfers, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, faculty, and class sizes.

A part of the standardization of information process is using a common definitions list.

The CDS is created yearly. Links to current and previous years' are provided in the menu below.
