UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
LISTS OF POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTIONS ENROLLING POPULATIONS
WITH SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGES OF MINORITY STUDENTS

HISPANIC-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 Hispanic-serving institutions, under the Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) program authorized by Title V of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), 20 U.S.C. §§1101-1103g. In order to be eligible for grants under the HSI program, each college and university attested that it met the HEA’s definition of an Hispanic-serving institution and self-certified that it met the conditions of eligibility.

The list does not include colleges and universities that did not apply for, or that did not receive, competitive Department grants under the HSI Program. Thus, the list is not necessarily a complete list of colleges and universities meeting the HEA’s definition of “Hispanic-serving institution.” 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 Hispanic students, and/or their eligibility for a specific grant, contract, or benefit program, directly with those institutions.

The HEA’s definition of “Hispanic-serving institution” is in Section 502(a)(5) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, 20 U.S.C. 1101a(a)(5). This can be found on-line at the website of the Office of Postsecondary Education (HEA Definition). [Note to the reader: You may find the PDF version particularly helpful in accessing the definition.]
