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. Below is a table of contents for the Fact Book, with links to tables.

The paper copy of the Fact Book is updated each February. This online version will be updated as data become available, and so will serve as the most current source of information. 

Please Note: In order to view these tables, you will need Adobe Reader.

NOTE: Most tables include students who are studying abroad.  As 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.
