Oregon Colleges that are Hardest to Get Into

Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in Oregon for 2020

These are the most selective public and private four-year colleges in Oregon. The list is ranked by acceptance rate, lowest to highest and limited to schools which reject at least half of all applicants. Leading the list is Reed College which sent acceptance letters to only 35% of the 5,957 students who applied and rejected 65%.

Not all schools on the most selective list are overly academically challenging. Some schools with less rigorous test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have space to admit them all.
