Amherst Quad Panorama

We're thinking of you in these challenging days.

We hope that you, your family and your community are well and managing the dizzying changes all of us have been experiencing as a result of the evolving COVID-19 public health crisis. Much is unsettled and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

Given the enormous disruptions, we know there's uncertainty and concern about many aspects of life, including education and the college process, so we want to share some important admission-related updates, along with information about the College's comprehensive response to COVID-19. We hope this information will add some clarity in these changing times and make this one part of life a little less stressful for admitted students and prospective applicants, as well as their parents and guardians.
