Cornell Admitted 5,863 Students to the Class of 2025

 Cornell’s admitted class of 2025 – a class that applied to college during an unprecedented year interrupted by pandemic-related closures and quarantines – is an impressive one and its composition has set new levels of diversity for the university.

“This has been a year like no other,” said Shawn Felton, executive director of undergraduate admissions for Cornell. “The lives of our applicants – and their experiences as high-school students – have changed. As a result, the way we reviewed applications also changed. It was especially important to be flexible this year; understanding and empathy have been key considerations for us.”

Cornell admitted 5,863 students to the Class of 2025, including early decision admission candidates.

The university continues to attract a diverse and inclusive student body. The proportion of admitted students who self-identify as underrepresented minorities increased to 34.2% from 33.7% last year, and 59.3% self-identify as students of color. That number has increased steadily over the past five years, enrollment officials said, from 52.5% in 2017 and 57.2% last year.

Of those admitted 1,163 will be first-generation college students – another increase over last year’s 844, Felton said.

Admitted members of the Class of 2025 come from 49 U.S. states (only Wyoming is not represented) plus Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam, as well as 87 countries outside the United States. Based on citizenship, admitted students represent 113 countries.

The undergraduate admissions selection process was completed on April 6, the official notification date for Ivy League schools.

“In a process that can be time-consuming and daunting on both sides in any year, pandemic conditions tested everyone,” said Jonathan Burdick, vice provost for enrollment. “I’m astonished and want to recognize how much our applicants, their counselors and families, and our application readers persisted and even sometimes thrived through the uncertainties.”
