How to Apply

The selection process at Goucher is highly individualized, and members of the admissions committee pay particularly close attention not only to students' academic development, but also to their personal qualities, talents, interests, and extracurricular involvement — qualifications that may not be reflected in standardized test scores, which are optional in Goucher's admissions process.

The application process differs for traditional first-year students, transfer students, international students, homeschoolers, students eligible for the EOP Program, and non-traditional undergraduates, so be sure to check what you need to include in your complete application to be considered for admission.

If you're a visiting student or are not seeking a degree from Goucher, you should use the form for non-degree candidates (PDF), not the Common App. If you'll be seeking to earn a second bachelor's degree, complete this form (PDF).
