Statistics

The statistics below are the result of a holistic application review process. We do not have GPA or testing cut-offs or targets. While we do seek to maintain a 2/3 majority of Virginians in our student population, we do not have quotas for specific high schools, towns, counties, or regions.

More data can be found through the Facts at a Glance pages and the Office of Institutional Assessment & Studies website.

Prospective students may find the information resources of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) of use in planning for college and careers. SCHEV has created an institutional profile for each Virginia public college and university, and for each independent college or university participating in the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant Program. The University’s profile may be viewed on the SCHEV website. (The University cautions that the wage data provided by SCHEV only includes those alumni employed or attending graduate school in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It does not include a sizable population of University alumni employed or attending graduate school outside the Commonwealth of Virginia.)
