Colleges with the Highest Acceptance Rate in illinois for 2019

The least selective four year colleges in illinois are presented below. Our ranking is comprised of institutions which accept over fifty percent of student applications. Leading the least selective list is Hebrew Theological College which sent acceptance letters to 95% of the 100 students who applied and rejected 5%. 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.
