Brown Class of 2026 Yield

Brown University has released its yield data for its Class of 2026. In all, nearly 70% of admitted students to Brown’s newest class chose to attend the Providence, Rhode Island-based institution. This marks a record high yield for the Ivy League university — up nearly 10 statistical points from the Brown Class of 2022. In fact, Brown’s yield has progressively increased every year over the last five years meaning that the school is getting better and better at inspiring students to matriculate.

As Jack Tajmajer reports for The Brown Daily Herald in a piece entitled “Nearly 70% of admitted students for class of 2026 accept spot at Brown,” “The University removed home equity as an asset when calculating financial need last October, which may have contributed to the high yield rate, [Dean of Admission Logan] Powell added. ’This led to substantial and positive changes in the financial aid awards for many of our admitted students,’ he said. Powell further attributed the yield to the return of three in-person ’A Day on College Hill’ events in April, which were ’enormously popular’ and allowed the University to ’showcase the beauty of the campus’ and the ’strength of our community,’ he wrote. The University also admitted 11 students off of the waitlist, 23 fewer than the previous class year, Powell wrote. In recent years, it has accepted between two and 300 students off of the waitlist, The Herald previously reported.”

After a record application haul for the Brown Class of 2026 in which 50,649 students applied through the two rounds of admission, and an all-time low admission rate of 5.02%, it seems Brown’s admissions office isn’t done celebrating yet. We congratulate Brown on the institution’s record yield for its Class of 2026! We’re so happy for our students who are getting their start at Brown this fall!
