Easiest Colleges to get into

Weber State University is one of the easiest colleges to get into because of its acceptance rate

Weber State University is one of the easiest colleges to get into because of its high acceptance rate. The beautiful campus is an added bonus.

If you are looking for some of the easiest colleges to get into, you may want to begin your college search within your state of residence.

Many in-state four-year schools go a little easier on in-state students when it comes to admissions. Local community colleges and tech schools will also pretty much accept any applicant who applies for admission.

Some in-state universities will even guarantee admission to resident students who complete a two-year associates (AA) degree at a local community college. This is the case in Washington State, which even offers eligible students free tuition.

If it's a flexible schedule you desire, you can always go the online college route. Research shows online programs have slightly higher acceptance rates than on-campus colleges.

On a national level, here are some notable colleges that are easy to get into, as they are colleges with some of the highest acceptance rates.
