Admitted Students

Congrats on your acceptance!

We are so excited to welcome you to our dynamic school. You already know that an education is what you make of it, and at Hampshire you can make it extraordinary by using your passions, your brains, your boldness, and your hard work. Explore more of what we have to offer below, and let us know if you have questions. We can’t wait to see you!

A change to our deposit deadline

The Department of Education has informed us that colleges can expect to receive student information from the FAFSA no earlier than March, 2024. Given this delay, Hampshire College has decided to extend our deposit deadline to June 1, 2024, for both Early Action and Regular Decision applicants. We understand that sticking to the traditional May 1 deadline would add unnecessary pressure on families as they navigate financial aid decisions for fall 2024 enrollment.
