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 Wednesdays and Fridays. 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: Through June 30 - Mondays and Fridays, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. EST
