Race/Ethnicity of Fall 2020 Students: Federal Reports

The US Department of Education uses two questions to obtain information for Federal reporting:

  1. Do you consider yourself to be Hispanic/Latino?
  2. In addition, select one or more racial categories to describe yourself.

For federal reporting, a student who selects "Hispanic/Latino," either alone or combined with one or more race categories, is reported as "Hispanic/Latino." Students who select only one race category are reported in that category, and those who select more than one race are reported as "Two or More Races."

Race and ethnicity are reported only for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. International students must be reported as a separate category. The table below shows the distribution of students enrolled Fall 2020. Percentages for minority students at the bottom of the table are based on the total number of students enrolled, not the total number of categories selected.
