It’s truly a wonderful class. I think anyone who is in the Class of 2026 could certainly claim — as we claimed for the Class of 1967 — that it’s the greatest class in the history of Harvard.

Harvard Regular Admissions Results for the Class of 2026

Only 1,954 students were accepted into Harvard’s class of 2026, with 1,214 coming from the regular admissions round with an admit rate as low as 2.3%.

Most top universities have reported a downward trend in admission rates in the last three years, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, optional standardized testing, and an uptick in the number of students applying to college. Arguably the most competitive school in the Ivy League, Harvard’s admit rates have steadily decreased over the last three years.
