Inside the Office of Admission
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.

Student-Led Tour & Information Session
We're offering limited capacity in-person campus tours led by our student tour guides. You will have access to some campus buildings during the tour.
Additionally, we are offering limited capacity information sessions with an Admission Officer.
Haverford is a mask friendly campus. Some spaces on campus may require a mask. Please carry a mask on you at all times in the event that you are asked to wear one.
If you are a high school or CBO bringing more than eight students to campus, please request a group tour.
We're offering in-person, self-guided tours of campus. This includes audio tour stops recorded by our tour guides at locations across campus. Unfortunately, self-guided tour visitors do not have access to campus buildings during their visit. Self-guided tours are available in the hours when the Admission Office is closed (evenings and weekends).
Schedule an Interview
While interviews are not required, we do recommend that all applicants interview. Though we are not able to meet with you in person, we would love to schedule a video interview via Zoom. We are currently offering interviews to first-year applicants who plan to apply to college in the fall of 2023 and enroll in college in fall 2024 (most commonly current high school juniors). We are unable to accommodate interview requests for transfer students. Interviews will be available now through the application deadlines in your senior year.
Please note, you are only able to have one admission interview.
Come with your questions or come just to listen and join our conversation. Parents, guardians, friends, and educators are all welcome.

Visit a Class
Take the opportunity to experience a Haverford classroom via Zoom! Below is a sampling of Haverford courses currently being taught in ways that are conducive to visitors.
If you would like to visit a class:
- Please be sure to email the professor in advance. While each of these faculty is open to visitors, there may be days the class isn't being held or there may be other reasons why visiting doesn't work on a specific day. The professor will provide the zoom link for the class once they hear from you.
- Please be sure to come into the meeting at the very beginning of the class. If you are not able to stay for the whole class, please make sure that this is okay with the professor.
- Feel free to participate in the class as you are able! Our faculty and students are warm and welcoming, and will be excited you are there.
