Goddard College has an inclusive admissions policy. When evaluating applications for admission, we assess applicant interest in attending the College, readiness to do so, and willingness to embrace fully the evolving educational model.

These are not casual criteria. Students who choose to attend Goddard must do so with an understanding of what Goddard is and is not, what the curriculum and programs can and cannot offer. This website and the student handbook describes what is a starting point for that understanding. The admissions process continues the dialogue.

The Application for Admission is designed to help the faculty and administrators at Goddard learn about a prospective student’s interest, readiness, and willingness. As part of the dialogue, the questions in the application also suggest some characteristics of the students Goddard hopes to enroll.

Both undergraduate and graduate applicants are charged a $65 fee. The application fee is waived for applicants who submit their materials by the published priority deadline.

An admissions counselor is available in the Admission’s Office Monday through Friday. Call us toll free at 1-800-906-8312, or email admissions@goddard.edu. We look forward to meeting you.
