Carson, Calif. – California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) is among the nation’s leaders in conferring bachelor’s degrees to Hispanic students, according to data published by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and recently reported by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education. These statistics ranked Cal State Dominguez Hills 26th in the top 100 universities across the nation in awarding bachelor’s degrees to Hispanic students. In the list ranking institutions conferring master’s degrees upon Hispanics, CSUDH ranked 40th.

Of the 11,549 students whose ethnicity is known at CSUDH, 36 percent or 4,203 students classify themselves as Hispanic, representing the largest ethnic group served by the University. While the percentage of Hispanic students places CSUDH as one of the most diverse universities in the country, the Hispanic Outlook rankings were made exclusively in terms of number of degrees awarded, recognizing larger institutions that can serve more students.
