Marymount on track to break application record ahead of Fall 2023 semester


After a record-breaking year for applications prior to the Fall 2022 semester, Marymount University is on pace for yet another all-time high leading up to Fall 2023.

As of April 11, 3,304 total applications have been received from prospective Saints – topping the 3,165 number from last year at this time (the Fall 2022 application total eventually grew to 3,551). So far, 2,660 students have been admitted for the next academic year – outpacing 2022’s number of 2,583 as of this time, which was the most on record. With Marymount’s rolling admissions policy, more admitted students are expected in the coming weeks and months.

“In a year when Marymount has broken into the Best National Universities rankings, our promising admissions and enrollment efforts that are ongoing demonstrate the University’s bright future and unique appeal to incoming students,” said Dr. Irma Becerra, President of Marymount University. “We shine through cutting-edge academic programs that are career-focused and offer a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio, an inclusive and welcoming environment, a diverse community that tops all other D.C. colleges and universities, our status as Virginia’s only four-year Hispanic-Serving Institution, a premiere location that gives our Saints a strategic advantage as they pursue their desired career field, a campus dedicated to service and exciting extracurricular activities, and much more. Marymount is proud to provide this transformational learning experience that develops the whole person and shapes the next generation of global leaders.”

So far, admitted students from Marymount’s Class of 2027 represent 42 states and 47 countries, with 12 percent of them international students and 27 percent identifying as Hispanic. Almost half of them hail from Virginia, the state most highly represented among admitted students. Rounding out the top 10, in order, are Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and Texas.

Beyond the U.S., the most international students admitted into the Class of 2027 are from Ethiopia, followed in order by Nepal, Ghana, India, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Jamaica.
