Application and Admission Process

This past academic year proved to be yet another cycle of excitement, challenges, and change in the already complex world of college admission and counseling. However we are pleased to share that, at Fordham, the past year was very successful. We owe much of that to your support and the great work that you do in finding students who are the right fit for our programs and campus community. In some ways, the coming year is shaping up to be even more challenging, and we will continue to rely on your significant partnership with us.

As the fall term began, we welcomed more than 2,200 students to both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses.The Class of 2022 is an exceptionally talented one. We attained an applicant pool of more than 46,100 and an acceptance rate of 46%. The mean GPA for enrolled students is 3.65 on a 4.0 scale. The Class also has a mean standardized test score of 1355 (+11 points over a year ago).  Additionally, the Class is notable for its geographic diversity with 64% of students enrolling from out of state, including representation from 47 states (including DC and Puerto Rico) and 41 countries worldwide. Students of color (domestic) and international students comprise 46% of the class.

Starting with the Fall 2019 admission cycle, Fordham will be super scoring the ACT.
