Via the FAU News Desk:


Florida Atlantic University’s incoming freshman class boasts the highest GPA in the university’s history. For the fall semester, the average high school GPA for first-time-in-college (FTIC) students is a 3.96, up from a 3.82 last fall.

“FAU has increased its admissions standards, and this number reflects that,” said FAU Provost Gary W. Perry. “We are committed to attracting high-achieving students, and we will continue to improve FAU’s academic reputation.”


FAU received more than 20,500 freshman applications and more than 8,300 transfer applications for fall.

FAU received more than 20,500 freshman applications and more than 8,300 transfer applications for fall.

How do these numbers stack up historically?

I remember during my graduation in fall 2011, President Saunders said that FAU is becoming the 1st choice for a lot of incoming freshmen. I believe they said they received 12,000 freshmen applications.
