Colby College Class of 2026 Admissions Statistics

Colby College set new benchmarks in admissions for the Class of 2026.

Colby College has released admissions notifications for all applicants to its Class of 2026. In all, between the Early Decision I, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision rounds of admission, 16,891 students applied to the Waterville, Maine-based institution. This marked a record applicant pool for the liberal arts college. And of these 16,891 applicants, 1,258 earned admission. The overall admission rate for the Colby College Class of 2026 thus stood at 7%, a record low.

Wondering about the breakdown of the admitted students to Colby’s Class of 2026? As Bob Keyes reports for Colby News in a piece entitled “Class of 2026 Admitted to Colby,” “The admitted students represent all 50 U.S. states and 88 countries. Approximately 14 percent are non-U.S. citizens. Among U.S. students, nearly 40 percent identify as a person of color. The median SAT is 1500. The median ACT is 34. Ninety percent of the students are expected to graduate in the top 10 percent of their high school class.”

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Colby’s Class of 2026 during a record year in admissions for the institution. Go Mules!
