Ethnicity is based on the new IPEDS definitions, using the data reported in the Fall SURDS file for those columns. Hispanic trumps all other race/ethnicity data, so there are Hispanics who also identified themselves as Asian or Native American, but for the purpose of this report, they show up only under Hispanic.

Full-time is defined as students taking 12 or more credit hours in the term being reported.

Receiving financial aid is defined as any student receiving any form of financial aid (including institutional grants, loans of any type, and/or work-study).
