Beginning with the 2010 data, federal law requires universities to collect race/ethnicity data on new students in greater detail, thus allowing new students to declare more than one race category. The University of Alabama (UA) uses the new data collection detail in producing this table. Hispanic students providing race data will be reported as Hispanic as well as any race categories they have self reported. All new students declaring more than one race category will be reported in each category provided. Therefore, adding the figures from the separate race/ethnic categories may yield a figure greater than the number shown in the 'Total' column, which is a unique student count. UA believes this method provides a more precise reflection of the racial and ethnic diversity of the student body.
