Special December-January Hours for the Office of Admission

From Saturday, December 18, through Monday, January 17, the Office of Admission will be operating with reduced public access (both phone and email), so that our staff can complete initial data entry for the large volume of application materials received around our January 3 Regular Decision deadline. For more details, please review our additional information on limited phone and email access. Thank you!

We search for exceptional students from across the country and around the world, including from places and populations that are historically underrepresented in higher education. Our financial aid policies are among the most generous in the nation and support our need-blind admission policy for all students, domestic and international. In all we do, our efforts are guided by the principles expressed in our Mission Statement.
