To be eligible to apply as a first-year student you must have received, or be on track to receive, a high school diploma or high school equivalency and be 17 years of age or older at the time of enrollment. College coursework completed during high school often counts towards advanced standing and possibly an accelerated timeline towards graduation. If you have completed 15 or more *transferable college credits, you are eligible to apply as a transfer student.
*Transferable credits are courses attended at a regionally accredited college or university that are comparable in content and nature to courses offered at Hampshire College and valued at three or more semester credit hours with a grade of C or above, or P in a pass/fail course.
