Virginia Colleges that are Easy to Get Into

Colleges with the Highest Acceptance Rate in Virginia for 2020

These are the least selective public and private four-year colleges in Virginia based on their admission rates. These colleges historically accept more than half of students who apply for admission. These are good safety schools for your college list and you should have a good chance on getting in if your grades and test scores are above or within their typical admission thresholds. Just because a school is less selective doesn't mean it's a lesser school academically and easy to get into for all students. Unless a college has guaranteed admission or accepts 100% of applicants, you still need sufficient grades to be accepted.

Use the filters on this page to narrow down the list based on your high school GPA, SAT and ACT scores. Once you do, your estimated admission chance will be displayed for each school. Additionally, you can filter the list by state, region or distance from your home to narrow down the list of colleges that are easiest for you to get into.
