Description

A tightly knit college community, Mitchell College is a small school in New London, Connecticut, that offers a well-rounded, interdisciplinary education across all majors. Students also have the option of choosing a program that offers an alternative to the traditional semester or quarter systems.

Bachelor’s and associate’s degree programs span academic and professional areas of study including:

  • Behavioral and Social Sciences
  • Communication Arts
  • Education
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Law
  • Liberal Arts

One unique thing about Mitchell is its option of enrolling in mini semesters, which last three weeks and are interspersed with traditional 12-week semesters.

Those in bachelor’s programs get a thorough education, which combines the study of one’s major with general education requirements in cultural studies, the sciences, arts, humanities and technology. In addition to studying their major, students also learn communication, writing and computer skills while also getting a broader context for the study of their major.

Additional Mitchell requirements, such as small group tutoring, also help to make for a comprehensive educational experience.

Financial aid is comprehensive as well, drawing from such sources as state grants, institutional grants and federal sources of aid, including grants and loans. Students with a financial need are usually offered a financial aid package that combines awards from these different aid sources.

Admissions to Mitchell are offered on a rolling basis, which means that applicants may apply at anytime throughout the year. Admissions requirements include an application, transcripts, letters of recommendation, a personal statement and an interview.
