Change Ethnicity Details

To comply with governmental record-keeping and reporting requirements, students are invited to voluntarily self-identify their race or ethnicity. The information obtained will be kept confidential and will only be used in accordance with the provisions of applicable laws, executive orders, and regulations. When reported, data will be aggregated and will not identify any specific individual. For further information, see Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).
