Hampshire Joins Universal College Application

Hampshire College is pleased to join with the Universal College Application. In response to serious technical problems with the Common Application this fall, Hampshire is now offering students the alternative of using the Universal College Application when submitting their applications for enrollment.

"We've been an exclusive user of the Common Application for many years, but we're concerned that so many students are having problems with it this year," said Hampshire Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Julie Richardson. "The Universal College Application is from a great organization with the same goal of making the application process easy for students."

Because of delays caused by the technological troubles with the Common Application, Hampshire's spring domestic student deadline has been moved back from November 1 to November 15. All other Hampshire College application deadlines remain the same. Students can apply online using the Universal College Application by visiting
