Apply to Goucher
The majors you want. The career you dream about. The global advantage you need.
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.
How to apply
The application process differs based on student type, so be sure to check what you need to include in your complete application to be considered for admission:
- First-Year Students
- Transfer Students
- International Students
- Homeschool Students
- Maryland Scholars Program
- Adult Undergraduates
- Graduate Students
If you're a visiting student or are not seeking a degree from Goucher, you should use the form for non-degree candidates, not the Common App. If you'll be seeking to earn a second bachelor's degree, complete this form (PDF).
