The first day of classes marked a major milestone for the University of Texas at Arlington, as its freshman class is now the largest in the University's history, with 3,346 new students joining us from across the U.S. and around the world. This represents a 12 percent increase as compared to fall semester last year.
The new class is also the most academically accomplished, with 65 percent of entering freshmen having graduated in the top 25 percent of their high school class. A record 261 new students have been accepted to UTA's Honors College, an increase of more than 60 percent over the year before. The average SAT score of incoming students has also risen.

The overall academic excellence of the entire freshman class is an important indicator that UTA is a rising star."
