Top Hispanic-Serving Online Colleges and Universities in California

These are the best Hispanic-Serving Institutions in California with robust online degree offerings.

Diversity, inclusion, and equity are important principles in all aspects of life and society, and higher education is no exception. The U.S. government recognizes colleges with diverse student populations, giving them special classifications. One such classification is that of Hispanic-Serving Institution. This classification means that the college or university’s student body is greater than 25% Hispanic. For their commitment to Hispanic populations, these institutions are eligible for federal grants that improve their ability to recruit more Hispanic Students and provide better educational opportunities.

Many of these colleges also house dedicated offices of diversity and inclusion, and have Hispanic student groups. Some offer services and resources for undocumented and non-resident students. Additionally, many of the colleges on this list are recognized as military friendly schools and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions.

For this ranking, we used our proprietary methodology that takes into account key metrics for identifying academic excellence:

  • Small Student-to-Faculty Ratio
  • High Number of Online Programs Offered
  • High Percentage of Online Students
  • High Graduation Rates
  • High Retention Rates
  • High Desirability—the relationship between the number of applicants of a school, those that got admitted, and of those, the number that enrolled.
  • Academic Influence—based off the number of scholarly contributions made by the institution’s faculty in their fields of study and how often they were cited by other scholarly works.
