CSUF Is Fourth for Bachelor's Degree To Hispanic Women
Eight California universities are among the top 20 and Cal State Fullerton is the highest ranked among them.

April 6, 2006

Cal State Fullerton is fourth in the nation among the top 20 institutions for awarding bachelor’s degrees to Hispanic women, according to a report published in a recent issue of Hispanic Outlook in Education.

The ranking in the magazine’s Feb. 27 issue includes institutions from Arizona, California, Florida, New Mexico, New York and Texas. Eight California universities are among the top 20 and Cal State Fullerton is the highest ranked among them.

The figures complement a previously reported ranking for the university — sixth in the nation for the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded to minority students and fifth for those awarded to Hispanics. Cal State Fullerton was the highest ranked overall among California State University campuses in the June 2 Black Issues in Higher Education’s 14th annual “Top 100 Degree Producers” report on undergraduate degrees awarded to minorities.

Hispanic Outlook based its report on 2004 data compiled by the National Center for Education Statistics. Black Issues in Higher Education’s ranking stemmed from 2003-04 data submitted by institutions of higher education to the U.S. Department of Education.

Hispanics constitute one-fourth of Cal State Fullerton’s student population.
