How to Apply

Ethnic information policy

Ethnic information is gathered in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; it is requested in reports required by the U.S. Department of Education. You are not, however, required to answer questions about ethnic origin, and refusal to answer will not affect your admission status.
