Common Application Update
The admissions office is carefully monitoring the challenges that high school seniors and school counselors are facing with the Common Application and supporting credential submissions. We understand their frustration and anxiety, and we stand ready to work with all prospective applicants, their families, and counselors should anyone be experiencing difficulties. Any challenges created by the Common Application will have no impact on a Swarthmore admissions decision now or throughout the process. We look forward to working with all constituents to make the application process as streamlined and stress free as possible. At this time, we have not extended our first round of early decision deadline of November 15, but we are monitoring the situation on a daily basis, and we will update this announcement as needed as we approach this first application deadline. We look forward to reviewing your application for admission to Swarthmore, and we wish you all the best in the process.
Note to applicants
Within two business days of submitting your Common Application, you should receive an email from the Admissions Office with a checklist of application components. This serves as a confirmation that we have received your application. If you have NOT received an email with a checklist within two business days of submitting your Common Application, please email the firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, Common Application ID number, and which application cycle you are applying for (Fall Early, Winter Early, Regular Decision) and let us know that you have not yet received an email from us. Thank you for your patience.
