About 85 students are offered spring admission each year to fill vacancies created by students who graduate at midyear and those studying abroad. These "Febs" are selected from the entire applicant pool and are notified of admission at the same time as students admitted for September.
Students may indicate on the Common Application Supplement their preference for a specific semester of entry (September only, February only, or either February or September); however, the admissions committee may not be able to honor all preferences. There are some students who may only indicate an interest in September but who may be offered a place in our February class.
Students enrolling in the spring use the fall semester to pursue a wide range of interesting options. Some elect to enroll at other colleges, others work, travel, volunteer or take advantage of the many proprietary programs aimed at young people.
More detailed information about February enrollment is can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions About February Admissions.
