Merrill and her staff, composed of 10 admissions professionals (no less than five are fellow Camels) and seven staff members as well as six additional people in the Financial Aid Office must do more than fill the classrooms. They must carefully convey the vision of the College, not just as it is but as it aspires to become. They must strive to attract and matriculate the kind and caliber of students who really will benefit from a Connecticut College education. They must not overpromise or oversell. And, as the dean notes, “We must never lose sight of the fact that admissions is an intensely personal process.”

What types of housing and financial aid are available for those students who are accepted from the Wait List?
Students admitted from the Wait List enter the same housing and orientation processes as other enrolling first-year students. The availability of financial aid varies from year-to-year. Connecticut College will meet 100 percent of demonstrated need for those Wait List candidates who are ultimately offered admission. Students offered a place in the class from the Wait List are concurrently notified of any financial aid eligibility.
We take a holistic approach to admissions

Spring Visit Days are designed to introduce high school students and their parents to Connecticut College and the college admission process. In addition to scheduled campus tours and group information sessions, you will be able to attend a presentation on navigating financial aid and a special mock interview session given by our expert Admission Fellows, current seniors who conduct the majority of on-campus interviews.
