January 2016

In 2014-15, there were 435 HSIs located in 18 states and Puerto Rico. These institutions represented 13% of all institutions of higher education and enrolled 62% of Latino undergraduates. The defining characteristic of HSIs is their Hispanic enrollment. The number of institutions meeting the enrollment criteria continues to grow.

The 2014-15 list of HSIs was created using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Excelencia’s analysis is not intended to designate eligibility for any specific program. Rather, it supports examining institutions that meet the basic legislative definition of HSIs.
