HSIs in the CSU

Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) are defined under the Higher Education Act (HEA) as colleges or universities where at least 25 percent of the undergraduate, full-time enrollment is Hispanic; and at least half of the institution’s degree-seeking students must be low-income. Eighteen of the California State University’s 23 campuses meet this criteria, allowing them to qualify for federal funding to expand and enhance educational opportunities for their students,  including those of Hispanic descent.
