See explanatory notes
- Pct in top x% of HS class calculated using cases with non-missing HS rank
- CU predicted GPA is primarily a function of HS GPA. Calculation is specific to college.
- CCHE index is a function of test scores and HS GPA/rank

Data from 2010 - present now include summer applicants

Data from 2012 - present matriculant counts will NOT match other postings due to some students taking only Continuing Education courses (there were two such students in 2012 and 2013)

Also see data from - 1988 - 1998 ||  1999 - 2009 ||  2010 - present
