HWS Opens Application Deadline to March 1

With the Covid-19 pandemic creating unexpected hardships in the lives of students and families, like many colleges and universities around the country, Hobart and William Smith have opened its application deadline to March 1.

“We are thrilled with our applicant pool and looking forward to welcoming a vibrant cohort of students to join the Classes of 2025,” says Vice President of Enrollment and Dean of Admissions John Young. “What we’re hearing from guidance counselors and colleagues is that the pandemic has disproportionately impacted the application rates of first-generation students and those from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. By moving our deadline to March 1, we hope to ensure that all students have the time and resources necessary to apply.”
