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.
We are excited to share with you the good news that visitors are once again welcome to explore our beautiful campus in person. For now, only the exterior grounds of the campus are open to visitors; all college buildings remain closed to the public. Masks are required outdoors while on Amherst's campus grounds whenever individuals are unable to maintain a six-feet distance from others.
And, as of June 2021, we have resumed in-person campus tours and information sessions! Advance registration is required for those on-campus events and health/safety protocols will be in place. We're also continuing our virtual visits, as well, so be sure to check out all our in-person and virtual visiting options. We can't wait to meet you!
Meet us on campus or on Zoom for a campus tour led by a student guide and an information session with an Admission dean. Register for an in-person or virtual campus visit — we’re looking forward to meeting you!
College is a time of discovery, when you wrestle with difficult questions, connect disparate ideas and discover what’s possible. Here, discover Amherst and what sets us apart.
We offer one of the most comprehensive, ambitious financial aid programs in the country.
