University Academic Standards


As we work toward becoming a Top 25 public research university, we’re pleased that the quality of our incoming students is already there.

The 2015-16 freshman class is an academically accomplished group, with average ACT scores and high school GPAs putting them among the top 10 percent of high school graduates statewide.

This group of students – the Class of 2019 – has an average ACT score of 27.  Their average high school GPA is 3.89, and about 49 percent had a high school GPA of 4.0 or higher.
