Learn more about Swarthmore:
We want the college application process to be accessible for everyone. That's why we waive the application fee via the Common Application or the Coalition Application if it poses a financial hardship, offer all-expenses-paid campus visit programs for admitted students, and waive the enrollment deposit for qualified students. In addition, we will not require test scores for the next two years.
If you're a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or undocumented (or DACA) student graduating from a U.S. high school, we don't consider your ability to pay when we evaluate your admission application. Swarthmore's financial aid awards meet 100% of determined need, and consist solely of grants (which do not need to be repaid) and the expectation that you'll work in a part-time campus-based job.
We support students with a range of programs and resources. Explore places like the Black Cultural Center, Intercultural Center, Interfaith Center, and Women's Resource Center. Learn more about our cash-free campus and funded internships. Discover an array of mentoring or fellowship programs that provide exciting opportunities for first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.
