Sonoma State Quick Facts

First Time Freshmen and Student Body Data

This section contains in-depth data regarding specific populations of SSU students, such as First Time Freshmen and the student body as a whole. Here, statistics on freshmen gender and ethnicity, admissions, and county of origin are presented, along with graduation and retention rates, and the number of degrees awarded in the most recent academic year.

Common Data Set

The Common Data Set is a compilation of statistics that are often provided to national publications, such as College Board and U.S. News and World Report, as well as the Voluntary System of Accountability's College Portrait.
