Colleges with the Highest Acceptance Rate in for 2018

The least selective four year colleges in are presented below. Our ranking is comprised of institutions which accept over fifty percent of student applications. Leading the least selective list is The Evergreen State College which sent acceptance letters to 97% of the 1,901 students who applied and rejected 3%. 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.
