Columbia Admitted 2218 Students to the Class of 2025

Columbia College and the School of Engineering and Applied Science released offers of admission to 2,218 students on Tuesday, causing the acceptance rate to plummet to a record-low 3.66 percent. Admitted students come from all 50 states and 100 countries.

During the 2020-21 admissions cycle, Columbia Undergraduate Admissions received 60,551 applications, a 51 percent increase from last year. This spike in applications, which peer institutions have also experienced, led the Ivy League to push its joint decision release from its typical date in late March to April 6. This delay, according to a March 10 statement, would allow “Columbia to most effectively and carefully consider each applicant through its comprehensive holistic review process.” Students will have until May 3 to respond to their offers of admission.

“As we celebrate these individuals and the incredible promise of their futures, we stand in great admiration for all that they have achieved despite the significant challenges of the past year,” Jessica Marinaccio, dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid, said in a statement.
