Truman began the fall 2013 semester with an increase in new student enrollment compared to last year’s class. In August, the University welcomed to campus a new freshmen class that included 1,330 students, an increase of nearly four percent compared to last year. The incoming freshmen touted an average ACT of just over 27 and high school GPA of 3.77. More than 80 percent of the students came from Missouri, with the remainder hailing from 23 additional states and 18 foreign countries. A majority of the transfer students, nearly 60 percent, came from two-year colleges, most of which are located in Missouri.
