The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) is the Commonwealth's coordinating body for higher education, and is the primary state entity for collecting and analyzing data related to higher education.  

Students and prospective students of Virginia State University may find the information resources of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) of use in planning for college and careers. SCHEV has created an institutional profile for each Virginia public college and university, and for each independent college or university participating in the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant Program. Our profile is available here.

SCHEV research staff is engaging in the conversion of its wealth of historic data sets into a data warehouse to support On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) and data mining efforts. One of the many outcomes of this effort has been a complete transformation of the way SCHEV publishes data and information to the web. New reports, more ways to view the data, and simpler access have significantly increased the availability of statistical data about Virginia higher education. 

The Integrated Postsecondary Educational Data System (IPEDS) is a system of surveys designed to collect data from all primary providers of postsecondary education.
