Dartmouth Admitted 1749 Students to the Class of 2025

 Dartmouth has offered admission to 1,749 applicants to the Class of 2025 from the 28,357 students who applied, the admissions office reported Tuesday evening. The acceptance rate of 6.17% is the lowest in Dartmouth history. The College projects the class will comprise 1,150 students, suggesting a planned yield rate of roughly 66%.

The Class of 2025 saw an increase in applications of 33% over last year’s record applicant pool. This follows the implementation of a test-optional admissions policy due to pandemic-related testing difficulties.

Students identifying as “Black, Indigenous and other people of color” comprise 48% of the admitted class, the admissions office reported, noting that 51 different tribal nations and North American indigenous groups are represented in the Class of 2025. Seventeen percent of students are the first generation in their family to attend college — a record-high.
