Ethnic Background
Optional - for federal/state reporting purposes only - This information will be used in a nondiscriminatory manner consistent with civil rights laws.


Colleges and universities are asked by many, including the federal government, accrediting associations, college guides, newspapers, and our own college/university communities, to describe the racial/ethnic backgrounds of our students and employees. In order to respond to these requests, we ask you to answer the following two questions:

Do you consider yourself to be Hispanic/Latino?


In addition, select one or more of the following racial categories to describe yourself:

American Indian or Alaskan Native
Black or African American
Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander


Are you a US Citizen? 

  If no, country where you hold citizenship  
What is your state of legal residence? (see definition below)
How long has this been your legal residence immediately prior to attending SAUM?
Legal residence means the legal home and place of permanent living of the student for all purposes. For purposes of paying fees, this residency must be (at least) for the last six continuous months. An out-of-state student enrolled for a full, or substantially full, program of credits at an educational institution is considered to be in Arkansas primarily for the purpose of attending school and not for the purpose of establishing in good faith a true, fixed and permanent home constituting an Arkansas domicile. Applicants who are not U.S. Citizens should select 'Foreign Country' as their state of legal residence.
