*Does not include students whose racial/ethnic group was not reported and international students.

**Starting in 2006, schools that only offer online instruction (Capella and Walden University) were separated from the Career School category. These institutions have headquarters in Minnesota but report their nation-wide enrollment. The majority of their students are enrolled from out of state.
