Ohio State reports diversity records and new college talent

Ohio State University reported record minority student enrollment and a new freshman class among the most talented in university history.

The new numbers are part of the fall semester enrollment report released today. The report includes key data on Ohio State undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at Columbus and regional campuses.

According to the report, total minority student enrollment across all campuses and at all levels reached an all-time high of 17,067. The percentage of minority graduate students has steadily increased over the five years and now represents 20.1% of all graduate students.

Additionally, the percentage of new freshmen on the Columbus campus who graduated in the top 10% of their high school classes increased from 64% to 71%. The percentage of incoming freshmen on the Columbus campus who graduated in the top 25% of their high school classes also increased from 94% to 98%.

The average ACT for the new freshman class at Columbus rose to 28.9 from 28.6 in 2021.

Total university enrollment is 65,795, down 2.9% and enrollment on the Columbus campus is 60,540, down 1.8%. The decline follows the university’s planned efforts to reduce the number of incoming freshmen after a record number of undergraduates on the Columbus campus in 2021 following the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. .
