What is a HSI?

Hispanic Serving Institutions – or HSIs – are colleges or universities where Hispanic students comprise at least 25% of the full-time equivalent student body, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

Hispanic Serving Institutions must:
  • Be certified as such by the Department of Education in order to apply for the Title V program
  • Meet program-specific requirements in order to be defined as an HSI

An HSI intentionally creates equity for, and advances the success of, its Hispanic/Latino students.
