Simmons College Undergraduate Admission Policy for Transgender Applicants

Comprised of an undergraduate women's college and several graduate schools, Simmons has a strong tradition of empowering women, challenging traditional gender roles and a rich history of inclusion. All applicants to the undergraduate program who were assigned female at birth and/or applicants who self-identify as women are eligible to apply for admission. We do not require government issued documentation for purposes of identifying an applicant's gender identity. Once enrolled, any student who completes the College's baccalaureate requirements will be awarded a Simmons degree regardless of gender identity or expression. All graduate programs are co-educational and are thus open to applicants of all genders.
