Barnard accepted 1,088 students into the class of 2022 out of 7,897 applications, a 35.5 percent increase in applicants within the last four years. As the applicant pool rises, Barnard’s admittance rate has also lowered to 13.7 percent, the lowest in College history.
The applicant pool remains diverse, with students from all 50 states, including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington D.C., as well as representing 44 countries, having 52% of the class identifying as people of color. Vice President for Enrollment Jennifer Fondiller described the admitted students as “intelligent, determined, and passionate for making a difference in the world.”
The class of 2022 will also be among the first to experience the newly built Milstein Center, as well as the Beyond Barnard program.
