Office of Admission

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


Haverford College offers state-of-the-art facilities within a 200-acre arboretum campus, located just minutes from Philadelphia.



Our Admission process is conducted as a comprehensive, holistic review in which each application is treated with extraordinary care and personal attention.



No place trusts you more to forge your own academic path and contribute so meaningfully to the spirit and fabric of the campus community.
