The SAT average this year is 1041. Last year it was 1033. It also rose over the previous two years.

The average ACT score rose as well, from 22 to 23. The average high school GPA rose too.

The percentage of incoming UNCG undergraduates identified as an ethnic/racial minority rose one percent, to 45.3 percent.

Provost David H. Perrin presented the figures at UNCG Faculty Convocation Sept. 18.

“Our university’s efforts to attract and admit high academic quality students continues to show results with these scores for incoming students,” Perrin said. “UNCG’s academic programs are challenging. The better prepared the students are when they enter UNCG, the more likely they will be successful. Student success is an essential goal for our university.”
