Academic Planning

student advising

Dear Class of 2023 and Transfer Students:

Welcome to Swarthmore College Academics! I look forward to meeting you during Orientation. The information in this section is dedicated to helping you think about and plan your first semester of courses at Swarthmore. It also contains information to help you think about how your first semester fits with and will support your full academic experience. At first glance it might seem overwhelming to balance your interests, goals, and College requirements with the range and number of options available. Our goal in this section is to scaffold you through all of your choices to an intellectually satisfying first semester.

We will update this website as new information becomes available this summer, so please check back in June.

Sincerely,

Tomoko Sakomura
Dean of Academic Success
