1 1 = public, 4-year; 2 = public, 2-year; 3 = private not-for-profit, 4-year; and 4 = private not-for-profit, 2-year.
2 "Total American Indian/Alaska Native" enrollment (column 11) includes graduate students and therefore does not equal “Undergraduate American Indian/Alaska Native” enrollment (column 13).
NOTE: This table only includes institutions that were in operation during the 2010-11 academic year. They are all members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium and, with few exceptions, are tribally controlled and located on reservations. Degree-granting institutions grant associate’s or higher degrees and participate in Title IV federal financial aid programs. Totals include persons of other racial/ethnic groups not separately identified.
