Lehigh acceptance rate at an all time low
Interim vice provost Bruce Bunnick said the acceptance rate for the class of 2021 was 24.7, 1.6 percentage points lower than the class of 2020. Bunnick said one factor that influences the acceptance rate is the quality of students that apply to Lehigh. The selectivity increased because of the high number and quality of applicants.
Jennifer Castro, director of diversity recruitment and Jade Eggleston, the assistant director, said 35 percent to the students accepted for the class of 2021 represent diversity, of which 10 percent are international students and 25 percent are students of color.****
Bunnick said in the fall of 2019, Lehigh’s first-year class will expand by 125 students from 1,235 to 1,360.
As for wait-listed students, Bunnick said 66 students were accepted off the waitlist in 2016....If the numbers are lower than anticipated in the middle to end of April, students will be taken off the waitlist and are given 72 hours to accept.
