Effective fall 2010, federal reporting of race/ethnicity categories changed. Through the 2009-2010 academic year, the THECB reporting categories were:
- Asian or Pacific Islander
- American Indian or Alaskan Native
- Unknown or Not Reported
The Ethnicity/Race categories used for reporting beginning in Fall 2010 are:
- African American
Hispanics are identified by an ethnicity question that is separate from the racial question. Hispanic students, except international ones, are counted as "Hispanic".
Students who are "Two or more races" (or multi-racial) are non-international, non-Hispanic students who selected two or more races.
"Asian" includes Asian, Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders.
"Other" includes American Indian, Alaskan Native, Unknown, and Two or more races (multi-racial).
"International" students are shown as a separate category.
