Fact Book

The Fact Book contains commonly requested comprehensive and historic information about Swarthmore, and serves as a reference for both internal and external audiences. 
The below individual pages are updated as data become available, and so will serve as the most current source of information. 

NOTE: Most tables include students who are studying abroad.  As the federally mandated reporting (IPEDS) has determined that external reporting (Fall 2016 and beyond) should now exclude these students, these internal Fact Book numbers may differ from some externally reported numbers.
