Common Data Set

The common data set is a data-gathering tool used by colleges and universities to share a common, extensive set of institutional data with guidebook publishers, higher education writers and interested members of the public. It has been developed through collaboration among several major national publishers and higher education organizations as represented by Peterson’s Guide, The College Board and U.S. News and World Report. 

University and College Accountability Network

The University and College Accountability Network (U-CAN) was designed by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities to give prospective students and their families concise, web-based consumer-friendly information on individual colleges and universities. In response to calls from Congress and the U.S. Department of Education for more data for consumers to evaluate colleges, U-CAN includes information identified by policymakers as being important for accountability.

National Center for Education Statistics

Data about cost, types of students enrolled, graduation rates and other Marlboro data collected by The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education.
