Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Hampshire, founded in 1965, is a private, liberal arts college featuring an interdisciplinary curriculum instead of single-discipline classes, student-designed concentrations instead of predetermined majors, and narrative evaluations instead of letter grades. Hampshire belongs to the Five Colleges Consortium, through which students may take classes at neighboring Smith College, Amherst College, Mount Holyoke College, and University of Massachusetts. Its 800-acre campus is located in Amherst, 90 miles west of Boston.
