Highly selective colleges boosted underrepresented minority students in fall 2021

New data shows 16 highly selective private colleges slightly boosted the number of Black and Hispanic students enrolled at their schools last fall.

New data shows 16 highly selective private colleges slightly boosted the number of Black and Hispanic students enrolled at their schools last fall. 

Meanwhile, across a large number of colleges and universities deemed as “selective,” the overall number of students classified as underrepresented minorities appears to have stayed nearly flat. 

The findings were released last month by the College Board, the not-for-profit education organization that in part helps schools facilitate the college admissions process, as part of its Admissions Research Consortium, a research effort that helps participating schools learn about each others’ admissions processes and outcomes. 

The 36-page report compared 51 four-year schools, including 32 private colleges with admit rates above 25%, which researchers classified as “selective,” and those below 25%, which were “more selective.” They also considered 19 public colleges with admit rates above and below 60%. 

Among private colleges with admit rates below 25%, the number of enrolled underrepresented minority students increased from 26.0% in fall 2020 to 29.4% in fall 2021. The report defines under-represented minority students as “Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and Two or More Races.”
