UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
LISTS OF POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTIONS ENROLLING POPULATIONS
WITH SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGES OF MINORITY STUDENTS
ALASKA NATIVE-SERVING INSTITUTIONS. This is a list of the colleges and universities to which the Department’s Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) recently has given grants as Alaska Native-serving institutions under Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). To be eligible for these grants, each institution attested that it met the HEA’s definition of Alaska Native-serving institutions and self-certified that it met the conditions of eligibility.
The list does not include colleges and universities that did not apply for, or which did not receive, competitive Department grants for Alaska Native-serving institutions. Thus, the list is not necessarily a complete list of colleges and universities meeting the HEA’s definition of Alaska Native-serving institutions. Federal agencies and others with an interest in colleges or universities not appearing on this list should obtain or confirm information regarding their enrollment of Alaska Native students, and/or their eligibility for a specific grant, contract, or benefit program, directly with those institutions.
The HEA’s definition of “Alaska Native-serving institution” is found in Section 317(b)(2) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, 20 U.S.C. 1059d(b)(2). This can be found online at the website of the Department’s Office of Postsecondary Education (HEA Definition). [Note to the reader: You may find the PDF version particularly helpful in accessing the definition.]
