Optional Application Materials for Baldwin Scholars Program

Test Scores
College Board number: 3447; ACT number: 1842
Although Hampshire does not require submission of standardized tests, SAT or ACT scores can sometimes help assess your abilities more fully. Please forward exam results directly to the admissions office.  

Sample of Creative Work
Although submissions of creative work rarely determine an admissions decision, it can add another dimension to your application and give a fuller picture of your interests and talents.

Please note that we can only review items that are no larger than three sheets of letter size (8 1/2” x 11”) pieces of paper.

Following are examples of creative work that can be submitted on up to three separate sheets of letter size paper:

  • Creative writing
  • Slides of paintings, drawings, sculpture, or craft work (mounted and labeled in a letter size slide sleeve)
  • Photographs
  • CD or DVD (no longer than fifteen minutes), or multimedia portfolio (please use a thin CD sleeve)

Because of the volume of mail that we receive, we regret that we cannot return samples of creative work.
