Another record-breaking class of new undergraduates has arrived. Projected to total more than 7,000, Temple's new students are the most highly qualified cohort in the university's history. Once final enrollment numbers are tallied in mid-September, they may end up being the largest as well.
Nearly 4,300 freshmen will start classes next week. The freshman class comes to Temple with an average SAT score of 1114, five points higher than last year's record average, 98 points higher than the national average and 120 points higher than the Pennsylvania average. Joining the freshmen will be more than 2,700 transfers with a collective transfer grade point average of 3.07, another all-time high.
