1 Two or more races was an optional reporting category in IPEDS 2008-09, and a total of 651 institutions reported an enrollment of 16,519 students of two or more races (0.1 percent of the 19,574,395 total students) using this option. The figures reported here should not be considered representative of the total number of individuals who could be classified into two or more races.

2 A total of 744 institutions reported fall enrollment using the optional revised levels of study that eliminated the first-professional category. For these institutions, students formerly classified as first-professional students are now classified as graduate students. In the prior year, graduate and first-professional student counts were reported for 729 of the 744 institutions, and 822,464 total graduate and first-professional students were reported. Of these students, 100,619 (12.2 percent) were classified as first-professional.
