Apply to Goucher
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 Admissions Office is currently open for virtual information sessions and counselor conversations and limited in-person visits on Mondays and Thursdays. To schedule a visit, please use our Online Scheduler. If you know an admitted or prospective student who has a question, please have them email the office.
Office Hours: Mondays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. EST
How to Apply
The application process differs for traditional first-year students, transfer students, international students, homeschool students, students eligible for the Maryland Scholars Program, adult undergraduates, and graduate students, so be sure to check what you need to include in your complete application to be considered for admission.
If you don't think the traditional application process enables you to fully tell your story, consider the Goucher Video Application.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with those who have been affected by COVID-19. These are difficult times for many, and we are here to help you through the application process and provide flexibility where possible.
We are keeping up to date on the ransomware cyber attack affecting Baltimore County Public Schools. We understand students will not be able to submit their transcripts at this time. Please know you can submit an application for admission without your transcript.
