You can apply to Hobart and William Smith for first-year admission using the Common Application. You may apply electronically, or you can download the forms and submit them via the mail. When you submit the electronic version, we will waive the $45 application fee.
Once you have submitted your application, we will send a confirmation to you. In the confirmation, we will ask you a series of questions, including whether or not you want us to use your standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) when we evaluate your application. In addition, shortly after you apply you will receive a username and password with instructions that will allow you to see whether all your required application materials have been received.
*NOTE: Since Hurricane Sandy has impacted the lives of millions of Americans, Hobart and William Smith Colleges are extending our Early Decision deadline from November 15th to December 1st. We understand that this is a very difficult time for many families, and that this deadline still may not be a sufficient amount of time to complete an early decision application. If this is the case we encourage you to contact our office. Notification for ED I will still take place by December 15th.
