Total Number of HBCU Schools?

I'm trying to compile a comprehensive list of HBCUs for my college research. With so much history and the culture they represent, it's important to me to consider them in my application process. Does anyone know the current total number of HBCU schools in the US?

As of my latest knowledge, there are 107 historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the United States. These institutions are a mix of public and private schools and serve a crucial role in higher education by providing academic opportunities, historically and predominantly, to African American students. When considering HBCUs, remember that each one provides unique academic, cultural, and social experiences. It's fantastic to hear that you are taking the time to consider them carefully as part of your college application process.

Make sure to look into each HBCU's specific programs, facilities, and campus life to find the best fit for your academic and personal aspirations. Some well-known HBCUs include Howard University, Spelman College, and Morehouse College, among others. Additionally, the Common Black College Application allows you to apply to multiple HBCUs at once, which could save you time and application fees. Good luck with your research!
