Office of Admission

Haverford students are defined by intellectual curiosity, a collaborative spirit, and a commitment to improving the world.

The Early Decision II deadline has been extended to January 6, 2021.

This year has been extraordinarily challenging in so many ways, and we recognize that we all need a break more than ever. We hope that you are able to get some needed rest, relaxation, and time for yourself over the upcoming winter vacation. If you are considering applying Early Decision II to Haverford, we have moved our deadline to January 6, in hopes of giving you a bit more space to have the true break you deserve! The deadline to apply for Regular Decision to Haverford is January 15, 2021.
