When you think of the life you want for your student someday, just know that we’ve been dedicated to making it a reality for nearly 250 years.

A Dickinson education prepares students to be leaders. It teaches them to communicate effectively. It provides them an ability to make connections and form relationships.

These skills translate into jobs, scholarships and acceptance into top graduate programs.

  • 95% are employed or in grad school within one year, and 92% of medical school and 96% of law school applicants are admitted.
  • 92% of Dickinson students have an internship, externship or fieldwork experience, and fieldwork and research happen in every major.
  • Our students get published, present at national conferences and use lab equipment usually reserved for graduate students. 
  • About 60% of our students study abroad—including science majors and athletes. And if through a Dickinson program, all the student's financial aid applies, and academic credits transfer back. 

All of these experiences happen in a community deeply invested in your student’s growth and success. Professors, advisors and coaches care about their students, and the entire Dickinson supports one another in a healthy, collaborative environment.
