University and College Accountability Network
Swarthmore College participates in the University and College Accountability Network (U-CAN) information-sharing site sponsored by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU). This site, launched in 2007, is designed to give prospective students and their families concise, Web-based, consumer-friendly information about individual colleges and universities.
Information about admissions, enrollment, academics, student demographics, graduation rates, faculty, class size, tuition and fee trends, price of attendance, financial aid, campus housing, student life and campus safety are available on our two-page campus profile.
The Common Data Set
Swarthmore College has committed to make public all data we share with college guides and other publications. The Common Data Set is a collection of facts, figures and statistics we share with these publishers and organizations.
The Common Data Set calls on institutions to provide answers to a predetermined set of questions, using standard definitions. It covers topics including student enrollment and retention, admissions, financial aid, academic offerings and policies, student life, annual expenses, instructional faculty, and class size.
