U.S. Colleges Easy to Get Into

Colleges with the Highest Acceptance Rate in America for 2019

The least selective four year colleges in the United States are presented below. Our ranking is comprised of institutions which accept over fifty percent of student applications. Leading the least selective list is Adams State College which sent acceptance letters to 99% of the 1,791 students who applied and rejected 1%. Just because a school is less selective doesn't mean it's a lesser school academically or easy to get into. If a school receives predominantly applications from well qualified prospective students and has a large student body, it may accept a high proportion of applications. This does not mean that it's necessarily easier for lesser qualified students to get into a less selective school.
