About the data
The figures are from the Education Department’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. They include associate- and bachelor’s degree granting institutions in the 50 states and Washington, D.C. Special-focus colleges are omitted from the list, as are those with degree-seeking cohorts of fewer than 100 students of all races/ethnicities. Colleges with cohorts seeking four-year degrees categorized as not equivalent to bachelor’s degrees have been omitted. Where both associate-seeking and bachelor’s seeking students were enrolled, we included only the largest cohort.
Students completing in 100-percent time (four years for bachelor’s degrees, two years for two-year degrees) are also included in the 150-perecent category (six years for bachelor’s, three years for two-year degrees). Some students in a cohort might graduate with a degree other than that which they set out to earn (usually of a shorter duration); those students are not included in the completion percentages.
The full list of race/ethnicities is: American Indian or Alaska Native; Asian; Black or African-American; Hispanic or Latino; Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander; two or more races; total minority; white; and race/ethnicity unknown. Those categories include U.S. citizens and permanent residents. “Nonresident alien” includes international students who could be of any race. A person can be counted in only one category; Hispanics can be of any race.
“Total minority” is the percentage of all students who are not categorized as white, race unknown, or nonresident alien. Some colleges reported a large number of students in the “race/ethnicity unknown” category. In those cases, all of the other figures should be interpreted with caution.
