Our list of colleges with high acceptance rates covers over 30 four-year colleges (public and private). Please note that these acceptance rates vary each year. Some schools are reputed for having easy admission policies and high acceptance rates while some are known for being extremely competitive.

As an aspiring student, it is important that you have some of these schools on your list so that if your dream school does not offer you admission, you can easily get admitted into these schools with a high admission rate.

The reason for competitive admission is the increasing rate of aspiring students that apply to a particular college. Acceptance rates are put in place by schools to give applicants an exact idea of their chances of getting into the said school.

Before we explore the list of colleges with high acceptance rates, let’s look at universities or colleges that have the lowest acceptance rates.

Colleges With the Lowest Acceptance Rates

The majority of the schools listed below that have the lowest acceptance rates are unsurprising because many of them are high-demand or Ivy League schools. Ivy League colleges generally cap their acceptance rates below 10%.

The reason that these schools have such low acceptance rates is that they receive thousands of applications each year. Harvard University’s acceptance rate is 4%. Caltech, MIT, Princeton, and Stanford also have an acceptance rate of 4%. This means that only one or two in 25 applicants are admitted each year.
