哈佛大学在常规录取中为1,223名2025级申请者发放了录取通知,总共1,968名被录取,其中包括在早申请中被录取的学生。2025年级的申请总数为57,435,比2024年级的40,248明显增加。
招生和助学金主任威廉·菲茨西蒙斯说,“这些申请者在过去的一年中面临并克服了前所未有的挑战”“他们的申请和个人故事揭示了他们的适应能力、知识好奇心以及对家庭、学校和社区的许多积极贡献。他们的确鼓舞人心。”
艺术与科学学院Edgerley家庭教务长Claudine Gay说,“尽管今年秋天有很多延期入学,但我们还是选择接受班级授课,因为我们相信这些令人难以置信的多样化、学识渊博又有修养的学生。” “哈佛致力于为所有有才华的学生打开机会之门,即使这意味着要面对明年我们要在校园内容纳更多学生的挑战。”
这周二获悉录取的学生来自全美50个州,哥伦比亚特区、波多黎各、美属维尔京群岛和94个国家和地区。国际学生占班级的12.2%,而美国双重公民占8.8%。大约20.4%的人口来自中大西洋国家,南部的19.8%,新英格兰的16.4%,西部和山区国家的17%,中西部的11.9%,美国领土和国外的14.5%。
“我们很高兴看到今年的申请者群体的多样性和实力,特别是在这样变化莫测的一年。”
——招生和助学金主任威廉·菲茨西蒙斯
根据预测,有55%的人将获得助学金,使得这些家庭每年平均支付12,000美元。哈佛将不需要年收入低于65,000美元的20%的家庭捐款。该组中的学生还将获得2,000美元的启动赠款,以帮助他们支付进入大学期间的入学费用和其他费用。此外,有27%的学生符合哈佛经济援助计划(HFAI)的资格,即那些年收入低于80,000美元的学生。自2005年推出HFAI以来,哈佛大学已向本科生提供了超过24亿美元的赠款。
哈佛大学助学金项目总监杰克·格里芬说,“尽管流行病造成了混乱,但哈佛仍维持了其所有非凡的基于需求的援助政策,并且我们仍致力于投资我们的核心价值,以消除为来自各个经济背景的优秀学生提供哈佛教育的障碍。” “我们感到高兴的是,我们有吸引力的助学金计划一直在激发申请者到哈佛大学求学。”
去年,哈佛大学宣布将从2020-21学年开始,进一步扩大助学金计划,从助学金中取消夏季工作,并用奖学金来代替。由于受疫情影响,哈佛取消了在2020-2021学年接受资助的学生的学期工作预期。目前,希望学生和社区成员能够在今年秋天重返校园,预计学生将通过学期工作捐款3,500美元,以支付估计的个人开支。在接下来的几个月中确定秋季计划时,将提供更多信息。
今年,估计有401名被录取的学生,约合20.4%,有资格获得联邦佩尔助学金,这些助学金通常颁发给来自低收入背景的学生,高于去年的380人,约占19%。第一代大学生是家庭中的第一代,要从四年制大学或同等学历毕业的学生占班级的20.7%,而2020年为19.4%。
在哈佛,收入从65,000美元到150,000美元不等且拥有典型资产的家庭所付的税款,不超过其年收入的10%。学生不需要贷款,年收入超过15万美元的家庭通常有资格根据自己的具体情况以递减的方式获得援助,例如有多个孩子上大学或特殊的医疗或其他基本费用。
哈佛大学的净价计算器使家庭更容易了解学院的承受能力。对于未获得基于需求的援助的学生,预计2021-2022学年的总出勤成本(包括学费、食宿、食宿和杂费)将增加3%,达到74,528美元。
2025年级反映了学院申请人的多样性,其中18%为非裔美国人,27.2%为亚裔,13.3%为拉丁裔,1.2%为美洲原住民和0.6%为夏威夷原住民。女性占全班接受的妇女的一半以上,占52.9%。
在一年中,很少有高中生能够参加标准化考试,或者能够去或进入校园进行亲自参观和与代表会面的机会,哈佛大学暂时修订了其申请要求,以允许学生无需ACT或SAT就可以申请入学。检测结果。最近,哈佛大学宣布将把标准化测试政策扩展到2021年至2022年的申请周期。此外,还鼓励申请人通过我们的在线信息发布会和虚拟导游探索哈佛大学。
菲茨西蒙斯继续说道:“我们很高兴看到今年的申请者群体的多样性和实力,特别是在没人能预测其变化方式的一年中。” “我们将继续审查对我们的申请要求的临时更改如何影响入学的班级,并且我们将努力确保我们的许多数字拓展计划,用来鼓励学生无论来自何处,都可以在哈佛看到自己。”
哈佛大学继续努力招募曾在美军中服役的人员,与国防部下属的团体合作,并于2017年加入“服务于学校”的VetLink计划。今年班级招收了19名退伍军人,有40名学生表示对ROTC有兴趣。
招生负责人MarlynMcGrath说:“学院为申请并在我们校园里就读的退伍军人提供了极大的帮助。” “我们班级的这些成员提供了独特的观点,可以增强校园的多样性和学习能力。”
由于持续新冠疫情,哈佛本科录取的新生的周末访问将再次远程进行。受邀学生可以参加今年为期一周的虚拟参观活动,在此期间,哈佛大学社区成员将举办在线活动,录取的学生可以与在校学生和教职员工建立联系。被录取的学生还可以在新的Crimson Connect在线社区中相互联系。
格里芬助学金办公室的工作人员本月将与学生及其家人交谈,以帮助他们做出最终的大学选择。
哈佛大学本月宣布,计划在秋天完全返回校园,包括完全开放宿舍和班级授课。
学生必须在5月3日之前回复他们的录取通知书。

1,968 total accepted to the Class of 2025 as regular-decision letters go out
Total applications up nearly 43% over last year
Harvard College has offered admission to 1,223 applicants for the Class of 2025 through its regular-action program, with 1,968 admitted in total, including those selected in the early action process. The total number of applications for the Class of 2025 was 57,435, a marked increase from 40,248 for the Class of 2024.
“These applicants have faced and overcome unprecedented challenges over the past year,” said William R. Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid. “Their applications and personal stories revealed a window into their resilience, their intellectual curiosity, and their many positive contributions to family, school, and community. They are truly inspiring.”
“We chose to admit a full class, despite the many deferrals matriculating this fall, because we believe in the promise of this incredibly diverse and accomplished group of students,” said Claudine Gay, Edgerley Family Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. “Harvard is committed to opening the doors of opportunity to all talented students, even if it means confronting the challenge of accommodating more students on campus next year.”
This year’s admitted class, who learned of their admission Tuesday evening, hails from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and from 94 countries. International students make up 12.2 percent of the class, and 8.8 percent are U.S. dual citizens. About 20.4 percent come from the Middle Atlantic States, 19.8 percent from the South, 16.4 percent from New England, 17 percent from Western and Mountain States, 11.9 percent from the Midwest, and 14.5 percent from the U.S territories and abroad.
“We were delighted to see the diversity and strength of this year’s applicant pool, particularly in a year where no one could predict how it would change.”
— William R. Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid
Based on projections, 55 percent will receive need-based grants, allowing families to pay an average of $12,000 annually. Harvard will require no contribution from 20 percent of families, representing those with annual incomes below $65,000. The students in this group will also receive $2,000 start-up grants to help with move-in costs and other expenses incurred in the transition to College. In addition, 27 percent of students qualified for the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative (HFAI), representing those with annual incomes below $80,000. Since launching HFAI in 2005, Harvard has awarded more than $2.4 billion in grants to undergraduates.
“Despite the disruptions associated with the pandemic, Harvard has maintained all of its extraordinary need-based aid policies, and we remain committed to investing in our core value of removing barriers to a Harvard education for outstanding students from all economic backgrounds,” said Jake Kaufmann, Griffin Director of Financial Aid. “We are pleased that our attractive, need-based financial aid program continues to inspire applicants to see themselves at Harvard College.”
Last year, Harvard announced it would further expand its financial aid program by eliminating the summer work expectation from aid awards beginning in the 2020–21 academic year, and replacing it with scholarship funds. Due to the disruptions associated with the pandemic, Harvard eliminated the term-time work expectation for students receiving financial aid in the 2020–2021 academic year. At this time, with the hope that students and community members will return to campus this fall, students will be expected to contribute $3,500 through term-time work to meet their estimated personal expenses. Further information will be available when fall plans are finalized in the coming months.
This year, an estimated 401 admitted students, or about 20.4 percent, qualified for federal Pell grants, typically awarded to students from lower-income backgrounds, up from 380, or about 19 percent, last year. First-generation students, those who will be in the first generation of their family to graduate from a four-year college or the equivalent, represent 20.7 percent of the class, compared with 19.4 percent in 2020.
At Harvard, families with incomes from $65,000 to $150,000 and typical assets pay no more than 10 percent of their annual incomes. Loans are not required of students, and families who make more than $150,000 are generally eligible for aid on a sliding scale, depending on their particular circumstances, such as multiple children in college or unusual medical or other essential expenses.
Harvard’s net-price calculator makes it easy for families to get a sense of the College’s affordability. For students not receiving need-based aid, the total cost of attendance (including tuition, room, board, and fees) is scheduled to increase by 3 percent to $74,528 for the 2021–2022 academic year.
The Class of 2025 reflects the increasing diversity of the College’s applicants, with 18 percent identifying as African American/Black, 27.2 percent as Asian American, 13.3 percent as Latinx, 1.2 percent as Native American, and 0.6 percent as Native Hawaiian. Women account for more than half, 52.9 percent, of all those accepted to the class.
In a year when few high school students had access to standardized testing or the ability to travel to or access campus for in-person tours and meetings with representatives, Harvard temporarily revised its application requirements to allow students to apply for admission without requiring ACT or SAT test results. Recently, Harvard announced it would extend that standardized testing policy through the 2021‒2022 application cycle. In addition, applicants were encouraged to explore Harvard College through our online information sessions and virtual tour.
“We were delighted to see the diversity and strength of this year’s applicant pool, particularly in a year where no one could predict how it would change,” continued Fitzsimmons. “We will continue to review how the temporary changes to our application requirements impact the admitted class, and we will work hard to ensure that our many digital outreach initiatives encourage students to see themselves at Harvard no matter where they come from.”
Harvard has continued with its efforts to recruit individuals who have served in the U.S. military, working with groups affiliated with the Defense Department and joining the Service to School’s VetLink program in 2017. Nineteen veterans were admitted to this year’s class, and 40 students expressed interest in ROTC.
“The College has benefited greatly from the increase in military veterans applying to and enrolling on our campus,” said Marlyn McGrath, director of admissions. “These members of our classes offer unique perspectives that enhance campus diversity and learning.”
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, programming for Visitas, the College’s admitted student weekend, will once again be remote. Students are invited to participate in this year’s Virtual Visitas for one week, during which members of the Harvard College community will host online events at which admitted students can connect with current students and faculty. Admitted students can also connect with one another in the new Crimson Connect online community.
Staff members in the Griffin Financial Aid office will be available to speak with students and their families this month to help them as they make their final college choices.
This month, Harvard announced it is planning for a full return to campus in the fall, including opening residential accommodations at full density and holding classes in person.
Students have until May 3 to reply to their offer of admission.
