Common Data Set
The Common Data Set Initiative (CDS) is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher-education community. The 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.
The Common Data Set is designed to provide a set of standard, clear questions and definitions that will provide comparable descriptive statistics about the College. Smith's CDS reports can be found below.
Smith College Data
While the Common Data Set provides aggregate enrollment data, we sometimes receive requests for detailed information about enrollments and graduations by major.
Detailed tables of majors and graduates are available on the Smith College registrar's website.
Further detailed data about Smith and other institutions can be found on the federal government's College Navigator website.
Please contact the office with additional questions.
