UC expecting larger, more diverse Freshman class

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati is expecting a larger, more diverse and academically successful freshman class for its Uptown Campus this fall as incoming students begin orientation this week.

The University of Cincinnati's Office of Enrollment Management reports it is meeting enrollment targets for freshmen to the Uptown Campus at a May 24 UC Board of Trustees meeting by Caroline Miller, senior associate vice president for Enrollment Management.

After record number of campus tours, this fall's freshman class is expected to be 10 percent larger than last year's freshman class on the main campus with 4,300 freshmen, based on early projections from UC Admissions and May confirmations. 

Miller says UC's growth in freshmen comes from beyond Greater Cincinnati. Confirmations for out-of-state first-year students are at 15 percent, a 4 percent increase from last year.  First-year international student confirmations are up 33 percent from last fall. UC expects this number to grow over the summer.

This fall's freshman class is expected to be more diverse. Confirmations of first-year African-American students are up more than 7 percent, confirmations of first-year Asian-American students are up 33 percent and students reporting multi-racial ethnicity are up by more than 26 percent. The UC2019 Strategic Plan aims to create a diverse campus community.

The class boasts a strong academic record with an average 3.44 GPA, 25 ACT score and 1140 SAT score.

UC‘s Bearcat Bound Orientation for new students runs through August 11.
