The University of Kansas Common Data Set

The Common Data Set provides answers to many frequently asked questions by prospective students and their parents. It is also a means to easily compare institutions with their peers. The Common Data Set initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report.

KU first completed the CDS in 2002. The current year's CDS is available by section below. Click here to view previous year Common Data Sets as a single PDF document.
