Lehigh University, the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based research institution with over 5,000 undergraduate students and 1,800 graduate students, has been on an upward trajectory in recent years. Over the last ten years, applications have skyrocketed, while the number of admitted students has climbed, though certainly not as significantly. Let’s take a look at Lehigh’s admission rates and enrollment numbers over the last decade!

Lehigh Admission and Enrollment Statistics Over 10 Years

For the Lehigh Class of 2027, 18,415 students applied. To put this number in perspective, ten years ago, for the Lehigh Class of 2018, 11,512 students applied — or 37.48% fewer applicants.

That said, over these same years, Lehigh has increased its number of admitted students — from 3,945 for the Class of 2018 to 5,389 for the Class of 2027 (with a record 6,485 admitted to the Class of 2025).

Lehigh has been steadily increasing the number of admitted students because they’ve expanded the size of their incoming class — from an enrollment of 1,299 for the Class of 2018 to a record 1,531 students for the Class of 2027.

Below, you’ll find Lehigh’s admission rates and enrollment numbers over the last ten years:
