About Skidmore College

Though first established as an institution for women, Skidmore College’s admissions have been open to men since 1971. Part of its original heritage remains, however, as women comprise nearly 60% of Skidmore’s student body.

Skidmore offers an impressive breadth of undergraduate academics. More than 60 programs of study are available, many of which are specially designed double-majors. For example, Business majors can add concentrations in Economics, French, German, Government or even Philosophy.

Skidmore’s campus is integrated with the city of Saratoga Springs, and student life and the city are closely intertwined. There are several opportunities to get involved on campus, as well, through student organizations, athletics and events like SaratogaArtsFest.

Admissions at Skidmore are based foremost on your academic accomplishments, but the college also considers your creativity, open-mindedness and desire to learn. Incoming freshmen should submit application materials to Skidmore by January 15, and the deadline for transfer students is April 1.

A variety of financial aid opportunities are available at Skidmore. Financial aid packages generally consist of grants, loans and work-study, but Skidmore also funds several merit scholarship programs. The financial aid application deadline is February 1.

Its a beautiful campus set in a beautiful town that is filled with history. There were a lot of activities to get students involved and interacting with one another on campus (like parties, events, shows, etc). Most of the faculty were easy to talk to and approach.
