Admissions

Students at Hampshire College

Thank you for your interest in joining our community! While Hampshire works to renew our academic program and secure a financially sustainable future, we are actively recruiting students to apply for the Fall 2020 class. The Common Application will re-open in early fall of 2019. In the meantime, please join our mailing list, visit campus, and check out updates.hampshire.edu to stay up-to-date on the latest news. Any questions? Please contact admissions@hampshire.edu or call 413.559.5471.

As a student at Hampshire, you will join a diverse community who thirst for meaningful education, want authentic assessment beyond grades, seek to pose compelling questions, and want to collaborate with faculty and peers.

Here you'll learn to connect ideas--and to put them into action. You'll build an education that reflects your passions and your goals.

There is no other college that approaches undergraduate learning this way.

Why Hampshire:

Application Deadlines

We are currently working diligently to fundraise the $15-20 million we'll need for the next year, and the near $100 million we'll need for the next five to six years. As we do this essential work, we are exploring the possibility of admitting new students of the Spring 2020 class and beyond.

If you are interested in applying in the near future, please know that our application deadlines will be made available as soon as we have necessary updates on fundraising progress and institutional restructuring.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers."

Loren Pope, Colleges that Change Lives (2006)

Hampshire College is a member of Colleges that Change Lives, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process.
