Today the U.S. Department of Education released detailed data for college debt, graduation rates, test scores, and more. There is a great website to explore the data and even a front-facing College Scorecard that lets you look up information for your university.
You can download the data as a single ZIP file, access it via the data.gov API, and most importantly, there's documentation.
Great news to see this data made available to the public!!
