Additional Information

Connecticut College was founded in 1911 because no other college in the state would accept women as students. To this day, we remain committed to supporting every student who wishes to pursue an education here. That's why we don't require standardized test scores or an application fee. We also meet 100% of demonstrated need and offer generous merit scholarships and financial aid packages (the average award is over $46,500).
