CSU Fullerton ranks No. 6 in nation for graduating minorities

University garners status for the second year in a row.

Cal State University Fullerton  ranked No. 6 in the nation for the number of bachelor's degrees it confers on minority students. The rating can be found in Diverse Issues in Higher Education's Top 100 Degree Producers publication.

This is the second consecutive year that the university garnered the honor, which is based on data from the U.S. Department of Education.

More than half of Cal State Fullerton’s 37,000 students identify themselves as a member of an ethnic group, the largest being Hispanic (28 percent) and Pacific Islander (22 percent).

The publication also lists the university as the second in the state for the number of degrees awarded to Hispanics, which match previously published scores in Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education.
