About Salem College

Salem College is a small private school with a big tradition. Established in 1772, it is one of the oldest colleges in the United States, and the oldest women’s college that has not become coeducational.

To go with this rich history are a wide range of academics. Salem College offers about 50 fields of undergraduate study. The Fleer Center provides continuing education and adult degree completion, and the college also has master’s degree programs in education.

While many similar institutions have become coed, Salem College maintains its tradition as a women’s institution. As such, admissions to the undergraduate school are restricted to women only. However, anyone can apply for graduate studies or to the Fleer Center.

Student life at Salem is intended to be a supplement to classroom study. Through student clubs and activities, residential life and career development, you can grow personally and professionally during your time on campus.

Depending on which school you apply to, financial aid may vary. For example, some scholarships are endowed specifically to the Fleer Center, while others are for traditional undergraduates only. Salem College’s Office of Financial Aid can help you find out what your options are.

I love this schools history. I always enjoyed the past and at Salem you live it every day. Buildings are as old as the United States and there's always something to learn.

Friendly students and professors. Admissions office is very helpful. Historic village of Salem is alongside college and is a reconstructed eighteenth century village.
