Hamilton Adopts a Need-Blind Policy for Admission: Decision Made to Ensure Student Access
Hamilton College already meets the full demonstrated need of every student it accepts and will continue to do so. The new policy at Hamilton, which is known as need-blind admission, is effective with the class currently being admitted for the fall of 2010. It fulfills a priority identified in the college’s recently adopted Strategic Plan to ensure Hamilton remains attractive in the future to a traditional college-age population that will be more racially, socioeconomically and geographically diverse.
