Common Data Set (CDS)
Beloit College's Common Data Set reports are compiled annually by the IRAP staff and are made available to the public. Sections of the report include enrollment and persistence, first-time first-year freshmen admission, transfer admission, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, instructional faculty and class size, and degrees conferred.
The most recent version of the Common Data Set as well as those from selected preceding years may be accessed through the links below.
The Common Data Set (CDS) Initiative is a collaborative project of college guide publishers and national research organizations with the goal of providing a consistent set of information about institutions of higher education. Questions and definitions are generally constant from year to year.
