Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) contains statistical and policy-oriented information pertaining to a wide range of issues (admissions, enrollment, financial aid, etc.) about William Paterson University. The items that appear in the CDS are ones that publishers of college guides (U.S. News and World Report, Newsweek, The College Board, Princeton Review, etc.) have collectively agreed upon as the most "commonly" used in their surveys. The CDS is especially useful for responding to such surveys, but it also serves as a comprehensive source of information about William Paterson University for a variety of other purposes.
