Swarthmore College

Located 11 miles southwest of Philadelphia, Swarthmore is a highly selective, private college of approximately 1650 undergraduate students. We seek intellectually curious students interested in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and engineering. Our students are driven to ask “why?” and “how?” questions, and enjoy collaborating with faculty and peers. As part of our commitment to college access, we meet 100% of determined financial need for all admitted students through loan-free financial aid packages.
