First-year students have two admission options:
Transfer students may use the Simmons Transfer Student Application, the Common Application, or the Universal Application. Simmons looks for a minimum 2.8 GPA for transfer students. Up to 80 credits may be transferred for courses passed with a grade of C or better at an accredited institution. Although transfer student applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, the preferred deadlines are April 1 for fall semester and November 1 for spring semester. Students applying to the nursing program should check the preferred nursing deadlines and apply early.
All international students must submit a Declaration of Finances Form (included with Simmons's International Student Application) that demonstrates proof of ability to pay tuition, living expenses, and associated costs while at Simmons. The College cannot issue a student visa until we have received the required statement.
Applicants for whom English is not the first language must submit official scores for either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A minimum TOEFL score of 83 internet-based (560 paper-based) or an IELTS core of 6.5 is strongly recommended. Comparable English language proficiency exams may be considered. For native English speakers, SAT or ACT scores are required.
Application deadlines for international students are February 1 for fall semester and November 15 for spring semester.
Applicants 24 years of age or older or who are seeking a second bachelor's degree qualify for the Dix Scholars program. Dix Scholars receive individual pre-admission counseling, full-time and part-time study options, generous transfer credit options (up to 80 credits), career counseling, study abroad scholarships, and more. The preferred application deadlines are July 1 for fall semester, November 1 for spring semester, and April 1 for summer session Students applying to the nursing program should check the preferred nursing deadlines and apply early.
The Simmons Honors Program is designed for students with strong analytical and writing skills and an eagerness for intellectual challenge. Admission is highly selective. Students who have excellent academic records are encouraged to apply by completing the Honors Program application supplement included with the Simmons online or print application.
