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.

How to Apply

First-Year Students Transfer Students Graduate Students

The application process differs for traditional first-year students, transfer students, international students, homeschool students, students eligible for the Maryland Scholars Programadult 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.

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).
