Information and instructions for setting up your Swarthmore email and completing New Student Forms will be e-mailed to new students in mid-May 2021. In order to access and complete the forms online, you must first set up your Swarthmore network and email account. Students who are admitted later will be e-mailed that information approximately every two weeks. In mid-July, we plan to email you with a second set of forms related to academic placement.

Below is a list of the forms that we ask you to complete. Unless otherwise noted, the new student forms should be completed online by June 1.

  • Housing Questionnaire

  • Academic Advising Questionnaire

  • Voluntary Disability Disclosure Form: for those students who wish to disclose a disability, particularly any student who wishes to determine eligibility for an academic, housing, dining, or other accommodation.
