As more students commit to Elon University each day and admissions tours continue throughout the spring, the university is starting to organize data on the class of 2026. Recognizing incoming student demographics can ensure the university is meeting its diversity, equity and inclusion goals, according to Vice President for Enrollment Greg Zaiser. 

This year the university received 17,492 applications and offered enrollment to 12,836. This is the second largest application pool in university history, according to Zaiser. The university received 17,834 for the 2021-22 school year. 

In an email to Elon News Network, Zaiser wrote that the university has done research to identify areas that are underrepresented in enrollment and address new areas for growth. 

The acceptance rate for the class of 2026 is 73%, which is a slight decrease from the class of 2025’s 78% acceptance rate.

According to Zaiser, the university is focused on recruiting in Texas, Illinois, California, Minnesota and Colorado, while also maintaining other national and international areas this year.
