This offer of admission reflects on your student's outstanding talent and ability, as well as your support and encouragement.

The right college education can make all the difference. Goucher College offers five big advantages:

  • Top-Tier Academics. You'll become a lifetime learner: You'll develop your critical-thinking, abstract-reasoning, and problem-solving skills, to name a few. This will prepare you for the jobs of the future.
  • Global Perspective. 100 percent of our students study abroad—an experience that employers value. Your student can go for three weeks or a semester.

Following the steps on the right is just the beginning of a life-changing experience for your student. Below you can listen to President José Antonio Bowen discuss how Goucher will prepare your student for a lifetime of success.
