A brief description of the institution’s formal designation:
CSUMB is a Hispanic Serving Institution. CSUMB first became eligible for the HSI designation in Spring 1998, just a few years after the founding of the university. CSUMB’s Hispanic Undergraduate FTE Enrollments have grown significantly between Fall 2008 and Fall 2017, increasing from 1,078 to 2,693, an increase of 150%. This is also true of the percentage of the undergraduate FTEs that are Hispanic students, growing from 28% in Fall 2008 to 43% in Fall 2017, with the only exception being Fall 2009 when the percentage dropped by 1%. In comparison, CSUMB’s Overall Undergraduate FTE Enrollments have also been growing, increasing from 3,800 in Fall 2008 to 6,311 in Fall 2017, an increase of 66%. (Each year enrollment experienced growth except for Fall 2017, when CSUMB decreased by 153 undergraduate FTE enrollments compared to Fall 2016.) There was a notable jump in overall enrollment between Fall 2013 at 5,167 to Fall 2014 at 6,028.
