2 "Total American Indian/Alaska Native" enrollment (column 10) includes graduate students and therefore does not equal "Undergraduate American Indian/Alaska Native" enrollment (column 12).
NOTE: These colleges are, with few exceptions, tribally controlled and located on reservations. They are all members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium. 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.
