 Knoles HallAs planned, total university enrollment for Fall 2014 is trending somewhat lower than last year. Budgeted enrollment is 6,189, and we expect about 6,285 students across all three campuses. This compares to 6,421 last year (6,438 budgeted). Total enrollment on the Stockton campus is expected to be 5,165. The 2014 entering class includes 917 freshmen, 213 undergraduate transfer students, 210 pharmacy students and more than 300 graduate students.
 Highlights of the new Freshman class

  • Representation of students from historically underserved groups remained strong, reflecting Pacific's ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. Among entering freshmen, 16 percent are Hispanic. African-American students make up 3 percent of the entering class. Asian-American students represent 40 percent of the entering class.
  • Among new freshmen, the average high school GPA is 3.48 and the average SAT score is 1,167.
  • More than 83 percent of incoming freshmen are California residents.
  • Nearly one in three entering freshmen come from the greater Stockton region (San Joaquin, Sacramento, Stanislaus and Calaveras counties).
  • 9 percent come from outside the United States.

New transfer students will total about 213, well above last year's 178. The average GPA is 3.19. The vast majority of our new transfer students come from our local market (68%) and Northern California (19%).
