|NOTE: Historically Black colleges and universities are degree-granting institutions established prior to 1964 with the principal mission of educating Black Americans. Federal regulations, 20 U.S. Code, Section 1061 (2), allow for certain exceptions to the founding date. Institutions that serve large proportions of Hispanic students are defined as institutions with a full-time-equivalent undergraduate enrollment of Hispanic students that represent 25 percent or more of the full-time-equivalent undergraduate enrollment of U.S. citizens. Tribally controlled institutions are, with a few exceptions, tribally controlled and located on reservations—they are all members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.
