Important admissions updates regarding the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The Swarthmore Admissions Office is closed to the public for in-person visits and phone calls through June 1; we remain open via email and virtual meetings. For more information, please see President Smith's March 17 message to the community and our March 11, 2020 update for counselors regarding COVID-19.
Swarthmore College is closely monitoring updates regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. We are aware that schools and activities in the affected areas have been suspended. The Admissions Office will work with students and families, teachers, and counselors to understand all extenuating circumstances regarding associated school modifications and take them into consideration for affected applicants. If you have any questions, please consult this resource or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Swarthmore College is where intellectually passionate students think and create together for the betterment of their communities and the world.
We collaborate, rather than compete. We dive deep and then put our ideas to work.
We believe in the power of place, knowing that students will thrive in our gorgeous arboretum campus but also appreciate the easy access to downtown Philadelphia, with a train station right at the edge of campus.
We embrace the knowledge that living in a community of people with diverse backgrounds challenges our assumptions and helps us become who we want to be.
Until now, your education might have been a wonderful appetizer. Welcome to Swarthmore: an endless intellectual buffet, where curiosity and collaboration help create leaders for the common good.
