How To Apply

New Testing Policies for Coming Admissions Cycle

Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the day-to-day for all of us, and as we look forward to the coming academic year at Hotchkiss, we know a great deal will be different. Yet we also know that we can’t -- and won’t -- let the pandemic stand between Hotchkiss and finding the next group of students from across the U.S. and around the world who will be the best fit for our community.

We are therefore pleased to announce a number of changes for the 2020-21 application cycle (to welcome students for the 2021-22 academic year) that are intended to ensure fairness, access, and greater convenience for applicants and their families.
