International Student Application Requirements & Deadlines
Admission to Connecticut College is competitive and highly selective. Each year, a class of 500 students is selected from approximately 5,000 applicants. Connecticut College seeks students from a variety of backgrounds - cultural, spiritual, sexual orientation, economic, racial, ethnic and geographical - who demonstrate academic and personal excellence. The secondary school record is most important. Also, qualities such as leadership, intellectual curiosity and accomplishment in non-academic areas are highly valued.
First-Year Application Checklist
- Common Application
- An official record of secondary (or higher secondary) school work with all courses and grades, including results (or probable results) of final examinations
- An explanation of the grading system used by your school provided on the International Supplement to the Secondary School Report
- Two letters of recommendation from a school teacher
- Optional Writing Supplement
- Optional results of the SAT Reasoning Test, two SAT Subject Tests or ACT (Learn more about our standardized test policy.)
