The college and the department are currently recruiting for the Class of 2013; these will be the incoming freshman in the Fall of 2009. Applications are currently coming in, with nearly 60 applications to our programs in Paper Engineering, Bioprocess Engineering, and Paper Science. Of these applications, 35 have been accepted with the remaining still pending a decision from the college.
The prospective entering class is again quite strong; the average high school average of the accepted students so far is 92.8 and the average SAT score (math+verbal) is 1243. This compares favorably to last years class that had a high school average of 90.0 and SAT of 1160. The average SAT score of college-bound students that took the SAT in 2007 was 1017 (www.collegeboard.com). We continue to recruit strong students that are ready for college.
