About MHC

Mount Holyoke College was the first of the Seven Sisters consortium, which includes such prestigious institutions as Bryn Mawr College and Vassar College. Like its sister schools, Mount Holyoke features a diverse and academically motivated student body.

Mount Holyoke’s premier academics are known for their emphasis on the classroom experience. The college has a student-to-faculty ratio under 10:1, and most classes have fewer than 20 students. This helps to establish closer student-teacher relationships, and a classroom environment based on discussion and inquiry.

Diversity is an essential part of student life at Mount Holyoke. International students make up about a fifth of enrollment, and about 30% of domestic students identify as people of color. To further encourage multiculturalism on campus, Mount Holyoke has established cultural centers like the Asian Center for Empowerment and the Jeannette Marks House.

Admissions at Mount Holyoke are open to women only. To apply, submit the Common Application and Mount Holyoke Supplement by January 15. For international students, the college has a rolling admissions policy up to July 1.

Mount Holyoke offers a mixture of need- and merit-based financial aid. Assistance comes primarily as institutional scholarships and grants, and federal grants and loans. The FAFSA is required for consideration for need-based aid.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2003

Overall Rating

Mount Holyoke provided me with some of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. It was sort of like being in an international think tank for four years. Academically rigorous, extremely diverse (very large international student population), and a place to forge lifelong friendships.
