The best need-blind HSIs best-colleges

Need-blind admissions mean a college doesn’t factor your financial situation in admissions decisions. You may still have to submit a FAFSA or CSS profile to find out what financial aid package you are eligible for. Need-blind is an attempt to focus on students’ academic merit rather than socio-economic background in college applications. Find below our rankings of the best need-blind Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) in the U.S. To learn more about how we rank schools, read our ranking description.

Net cost: The median annual cost of all students that receive any aid. This does not refer to the “sticker price”, the price listed by the college.

Earnings: The median earnings of all bachelor-level students 10 years after enrollment. This includes both students that do and do not graduate, across all majors.

Payback: The amount of time in years it takes to pay off the median net cost by the median earnings. For this calculation, the median earning of high school graduates (in the school’s home state) are deducted from the median earnings.

Degree premium: The difference between the school’s median earnings and the median earnings for all schools in the same state. This is called “Vs. state average” in school profiles below.

Ranking: The payback rate is divided by the degree premium (set as a percentage), the lower the number the higher the rank. (i.e. payback=1, degree premium 20% higher than state school median: 1/120% = .883.
