Race/Ethnicity as reported to the U.S. Department of Education

Overview

U.S. Department of Education's regulations specify how the University collects, stores, and reports data on citizenship status, Hispanic ethnicity, and race. These data are collected using three questions: 1) citizenship status, 2) Hispanic ethnicity, and 3) race. Under this protocol the U.S. Department of Education requires that individuals be counted a single category. Individuals holding a temporary resident visa are reported as International, regardless of their response to the Hispanic ethnicity and race questions. Individuals who are U.S. citizens or hold a permanent resident visa (Green Card) and identify as Hispanic are reported as Hispanic, regardless of their response to the race question. Individuals who are U.S. citizens or hold a permanent resident visa (Green Card), do not identify as being Hispanic and identify with one of the five race categories are reported in that category. Individuals who are U.S. citizens or hold a permanent resident visa (Green Card), do not identify as being Hispanic and identify with more than one the five race categories are reported in the "Two or More Races" category. Individuals who are U.S. citizens or hold a permanent resident visa (Green Card) who decline to answer the Hispanic ethnicity question and the race question are reported in the Unknown category.
