According to the Director of Admission, Adam Stoltz, Chico State admitted 15,468, first-time freshmen for the fall semester.

The office of admissions does not anticipate anywhere near that many student attending though.

The average freshman has a 3.44 GPA, 1023 SAT score and a 22 ACT score, according to the Office of Admissions.
