Our admissions process is highly individualized. We look at you as a whole student. We look not just at your previous academic achievement, but also at your personal qualities and intellectual promise—qualifications that may not be reflected in standardized test scores, which are optional in Goucher’s admissions process. We have two forms you can choose from: the Common Application or the Goucher Video Application. We created the Goucher Video App to provide another opportunity for students to show us what makes them unique, and why they would flourish at Goucher. There is no application fee.
Transfer students must submit the Common Application as well as an essay, an official college transcript(s) from all colleges attended, an official high school transcript (if fewer than 30 attempted credits), and a recommendation letter. The Goucher Video Application is not available to transfer students. There is no application fee. Transfer scholarships are available.
When you’re trying to make up your mind about college, you’ll want to tour the campus, sit in on a class, and meet the students, faculty, and community members who will make it feel like home. A visit to our campus will help you learn what life is all about at Goucher. We typically offer information sessions and student-led campus tours on weekdays throughout the year, as well as on selected Saturdays and Sundays during the academic year.
I'm in a place where I'm doing exactly what I had hoped. My classes are my passion, and I love my professors, so every day I want to work for it. Goucher is my home.
