The Dorothea Lynde Dix Scholars program, designed for women who are 24 years or older, provides adult women with the opportunity to benefit from the unique combination of liberal arts and sciences, as well as professional study that Simmons undergraduate programs offer.
If you're thinking, "How can I possibly do this?" you are in good company. Many successful adult students and alumnae once felt overwhelmed at the prospect of going back to school, mastering new technology, and finding the time to study and "be a student" while balancing work, family, and numerous other obligations. The truth is, adult students—women like you—comprise approximately 25 percent of our undergraduate student body and often attain higher grade point averages than do younger students.
The moment you decide to apply to Simmons, our admission staff is ready to help. We personalize our admission process to fit busy, often complex lives of forward thinking women like you. Take some time to explore our site, request more information, or contact us with questions. We look forward to getting to know you!

Tip #33: "Take the time to attend college. It’s not just about career opportunities - your education goes much more deeply. It’s easy to grow complacent in the workplace and it becomes harder to step back to take the time to pursue longstanding or new goals." - Nanette Savides, Sociology major
