Earlham's admission process takes many factors into consideration when evaluating applicants with the ultimate goal of finding students who have the potential to be successful academically and who will be positive members of our community. First year applicants have completed at least 15 academic high school units or the equivalent and have not been enrolled as full time, degree-seeking students at another college or university. See more details about applying at earlham.edu/admission/apply.
We welcome applications from students who have successfully completed courses while enrolled at another postsecondary institution, but have not yet earned a four-year degree. A transfer candidate should be in good standing at the college or university she or he is currently attending. Transfer students must spend a minimum of four semesters at Earlham in order to receive an Earlham degree. See more details about applying at earlham.edu/admission/apply.
