CU’s new freshman class

August 20, 2012

The serenity of the Clemson campus has been broken by the arrival of students, including the largest freshman class in school history

Clemson buzzes with activity this week as it welcomes its largest-ever freshman class that numbers more than 3,450 students. Clemson received a record number of applications this year—18,500—and saw a four percent increase in yield, the percentage of accepted students who enroll. The unofficial average SAT score for the entering freshman class also sets a new record of 1,245. About 95% of incoming freshmen from South Carolina receive either a Palmetto Fellows of LIFE Scholarship. On the average, in-state freshmen pay about 32% of the total cost of tuition. About 1,200 transfer students also are expected to enroll this fall. One-third of those transfer students are coming from the Bridge to Clemson program at Tri-County Technical College.
