We are committed to recognizing transfer students who have demonstrated outstanding academic performance, leadership and service, as we seek students who will benefit from and contribute to Dickinson’s vision: to be actively engaged with the wider world and challenged to think differently and act boldly.
Dickinsonians are guided by a core set of tenets—to be decisive, useful, curious and unafraid to take risks. We produce critical thinkers who see how everything is connected. Graduates forever ready to make a difference. Dickinson’s brand of liberal arts has been around for more than 200 years for one reason—it works.
