Schedule an Interview

We encourage all prospective students to visit campus as part of their and our decision about admission. International students or other applicants with extenuating circumstances may request a digital or phone interview.

Visit Putney

When your application is complete, it will be evaluated by our Admission Committee, which includes admission staff, faculty members, and current seniors. We inform all applicants of our admission decision. Contracts are then sent out, including financial aid grant information for accepted students.





Applicants who live outside the United States should follow the same process as US residents, with only a few differences.

If space permits, we will consider applications for mid-year openings, which commences when students return from winter break early in January. Financial aid is not available for mid-year applicants. We rarely enroll international students mid year.
