Harvard Admits 4.6 Percent of Applicants to Class of 2022

Harvard has had their lowest admission rate ever.

on

Harvard University admitted 4.6 percent of applicants to the class of 2022, the school’s lowest ever.

Out of 42,749 students who applied, the admissions board admitted only accepted 1,962 of them for this coming fall. This was due to an eight percent increase in the number of applications received and because the admission’s office was planning to except fewer applicants overall due to the overflow of students from the class of 2021.

Additionally, the number of low-income students is now the university’s highest ever with the inclusion of the class of 2022, totaling sixteen percent of undergraduates receiving federal Pell Grants.

The Harvard Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI) is also in use to reach out to students who have potential to attend Harvard, but might not think of applying due to financial costs. The HFAI offers free tuition to students from families with a yearly income of less than $65,000, while those of up to $150,000 per year pay on a graduated scale, up to 10 percent of their family’s annual income.
