Common Data Set

Institutional Research maintains a Common Data Set (CDS), which contains standardized data about FGCU and is available to numerous publications, surveys, and general inquiries as well as the U.S. Department of Education. The common data set allows students, families and the media to research and evaluate secondary educational institutions on a comparable basis. 

The CDS includes annual information about admissions and enrollment, tuition and expenses, graduation rates, faculty and class size, financial aid, student life and available degrees.

IPEDS data is submitted annually to the National Center for Education Statistics, US Department of Education. The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System collects data from over 7,500 U.S. postsecondary educational institutions on student enrollment, graduation rates, program completions, faculty, staff, and finances.

These data are used at the federal and state level for policy analysis and development; at the institutional level for benchmarking and peer analysis; and by students and parents in the college search process. Below are the most current IPEDS Reports for FGCU:

In addition to the eleven separate IPEDS reports, NCES uses the submitted data to prepare a Data Feedback Report for FGCU, providing selected comparison between FGCU and comparable universities. More information is available at the IPEDS website.  

Students and families can view FGCU data on College Navigator website: collegenavigator:FGCU
