In September 2020, Dickinson became one of the first liberal-arts colleges in the U.S. to move to a test-free admissions process, and we are committed to that through the fall 2023 admission cycle. By declaring that we are test free, the admissions committee will not factor testing scores into a decision about enrollment, even if scores are submitted. For full details, please visit our standardized testing page.
In addition, we have removed our application fee so that all students can apply to Dickinson using the Common App for free.
Specific application information is available for early admission, transfer and international applicants.
