Complete and submit your application through the Common Application online, to include:

  • The Common Application, including Dickinson's member questions and Writing Supplement
  • Transfer College Report (required for all colleges/universities attended)

All forms may be requested electronically through the Common Application. (For example, you may submit a request through the Common Application to your college registrar for an official transcript.) If you are unable to request forms electronically you will be given the option to download and print PDFs of these forms for submission on paper.

After submitting your application, you can track your application on our site to make sure it's complete.


We have been test optional since 1994, although we suspended all standardized-test submission briefly during the COVID-19 pandemic. View our Test-Optional FAQ for additional information.

International Transfer Applicants

Dickinson requires demonstrated English language proficiency for all international applicants. English proficiency may also be established by successful completion of at least two years at a college or university where English is the principal language of instruction or through submission of TOEFL iBT, IELTS, or Duolingo English Test.

Applicants must indicate their intention to apply for financial aid on the Common Application.

Students requesting need-based aid should complete the College Board CSS Profile application. This form must be completed and submitted electronically. This application is available annually on October 1. The CSS Profile deadline is the same as the application deadline.

All international applicants must submit the Certification of Finances (COF) form. This online form is available after applications are submitted and applicants have set up their application portal. We strongly encourage applicants and their families to read the COF instructions prior to completing the online COF form. This will ensure that applicants and their families have sufficient time to collect the required financial documentation that must be submitted with the form.

International transfer students whose academic transcripts are from a college or university located outside the United States are required to have their transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES) after they have been accepted to Dickinson and paid their enrollment deposit. WES is an international academic credit evaluation agency. Dickinson College requires the Comprehensive Course by Course evaluation.
