Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both students and college admissions officers. For the purposes of producing diversity scores, College Factual defines diversity as the most plurality. Schools that rank high in diversity metrics are those with the greatest variety in ethnicity, gender, age, and geographic location of origin.

Central Coast College Overall Diversity Not Known
We were not able to calculate the measures of diversity we needed for Central Coast College to come up with a ranking.
Racial Diversity Unknown
Racially-diverse college campuses offer students the chance to study and learn with undergraduates from ethnic and racial groups that are unique from their own.
Unfortunately, Central Coast College did not provide enough diversity data, so we weren't able to calculate a ranking.
Male to Female Diversity Unknown
For most schools, the male to female ratio is in fact slanted in favor of women, with about six females for every four males. In this section we would usually show what the actual ratio is for this school, but regrettably that data is not available.
Geographic Diversity Unknown
Some young people prefer a school that mainly represents students from within their own state, while some may be searching for schools that recruit and attract students from all over the country and the globe. Which is right for you?
For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to determine the geographic diversity by looking at where enrolled undergrads lived prior to getting admitted to college.
But unfortunately, we were not able to get the data to find out Central Coast College's geographic diversity score.
International Student Diversity at Central Coast College
We wanted to tell you more about the international students on campus, but this data is not available.
Age Diversity Unknown
Some students may opt to be surrounded by other students who are the same age, while others seek input from other age groups.
The traditional college student ranges in age from 18 to 21. We were able to determine the student body age distribution for most of the schools in our database. Sadly, we were not able to do so for Central Coast College, as the information is not available.
Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas. Students who say that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to offer a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, religions, and classes.
- Is Central Coast College attracting learners from all economic backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Central Coast College is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Central Coast College?
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to teach students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote meaningful connections between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
