UC Berkeley has offered admission to more than 15,500 freshmen for the fall 2017 academic year, according to data released by the campus in conjunction with the university.
The admitted students were chosen from a pool of more than 85,000 students — an 18.3 percent acceptance rate for incoming freshmen, up from last year’s 17.5 percent freshmen admission rate.
UC Berkeley continues to have the lowest rate of transfer student admission at 27.9 percent, up one percent from 2016. UCLA has the second lowest rate of transfer admission at 28.1 percent. The acceptance rates then jump into the 50s and 60s for the seven remaining UC campuses.
