  • The Underrepresented Minority Subtotal includes African American/Black, Chicanx/Latinx, Native American/Alaska Native, and Pacific Islander.
  • These tables include both domestic and international students in all counts, unlike most campus and federal reporting that does not show race/ethnicity for US nonresidents.
  • These tables show every race/ethnicity currently collected for students by the University of California.
  • These detailed counts are duplicated, so one student will be counted in multiple rows if they self-report multiple races/ethnicities. A given student will only be counted as 1 in each subtotal and grand total row, however.
