Join the dynamic Simmons community

Since our founding as a women’s college, our students have challenged traditional gender norms. Our undergraduate women-centered community welcomes students from marginalized genders, including those who identify as women or do not fit into the gender binary. The Simmons story is one of growth, innovation, and a solid foundation - fueled by on-the-ground and online enrollment, and investments in its campus and technology.

Our admission team looks for students who are intellectually curious, show potential for growth and leadership, and who will thrive at Simmons. When you apply to Simmons, you’re automatically reviewed for merit scholarships. We award these scholarships based on academic performance, leadership and involvement, community service, and your college essay. There are also full tuition scholarships that require separate applications and review process.
