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 December 31; prospective students and their families can still engage with us through our virtual programs.
We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and how it’s affecting schools and activities across the country. The Admissions Office will work with students and families, teachers, and counselors to understand and take into consideration all extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prospective students who are interested in learning more can visit this resource page, which includes information on our decision to implement a temporary test-optional policy.
We're always available to answer questions via email at 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.
