Stoodnt Assessment

As an independent institution, the college operates under a charter granted in 1832 by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The College is governed by a 39-member board of trustees comprising leaders from a range of professions and walks of life. Thirty of the College’s trustees are graduates of Gettysburg. Gettysburg is considered a more selective college, with admission rates recently hovering around 40%. The Class of 2019 had below a 30% acceptance rate, and Gettysburg often competes with comparable schools Dickinson and Franklin & Marshall for applicants.82% of the class of 2020 was in the top 25% of their high schools, 64% of students were in the top 10% of their school.Nearly 2,700 students, approximately one-half men and one-half women and representing 40 states and 39 foreign countries, attend the college. 75% of these students come from outside of Pennsylvania. Around 85% of the student body will graduate in five years, and almost 60% of graduates will study at least one semester abroad. The college has high retention rates, historically hovering around 90%.On the student level, adjudication of academic disputes takes place through an Honor Commission, which holds hearings in which students are given a chance to have their say on charges brought against them. The Academic Honor Code has been in effect since 1957, and recently has been updated to fit better with today's technology.
