Is Amherst "need-blind"?
Amherst College is "need-blind" in evaluating international students. In considering you for admission, Amherst will not take into consideration whether or not you have applied for financial aid.
Last year Amherst received 1,873 admission applications from international students. Of these, 1,498 also applied for financial aid. 116 applicants were admitted, and 85 were admitted with a financial aid award; 34 of these students enrolled at Amherst.
