Members of the Postsecondary Data Collaborative (PostsecData) Thank the U.S. Department of Education for the Updates Made to the College Scorecard

Published Feb 25, 2022

PostsecData recognizes the vital role that the College Scorecard (Scorecard) plays in keeping students informed about their college options, through direct use of the online tool, as well as the applications and analyses that researchers and developers produce using the underlying data to help students and
policymakers navigate the postsecondary landscape. Further, these data are essential to institutions and policymakers as they seek to implement and refine programs, policies, and investments.

The College Scorecard represents the single best source for important information about the economic outcomes of students by institution and field of study for all colleges nationwide. PostsecData appreciates the recent addition of several key data elements, which will add considerable value to students and their families, policymakers, researchers and advocates, and more.
