For Fall 2017, 48 percent of all applicants were admitted. That number includes applicants to graduate programs, the law school, and transfers.
The percentage of admitted students went up from Fall 2013 through Fall 2015. But then it went down to just 39 percent for Fall 2016, when the university took another hit enrollment that caused it to lose more tuition and fee dollars.
But for Fall 2017, FAMU increased its enrollment to 9,913 students. The freshman class had a GPA average of 3.39. Its average SAT score was higher than the Florida and national averages.
