Applicant Selection Process
Our application selection process is a holistic one, giving students the chance to be recognized for their individual talents, intellect, and achievements. First-year or international students may use the Common Application, Online Application, or Paper Application. Davidson also requires a supplement application. Learn more.
Davidson College is dedicated to intellectual and cultural growth in the broadest sense. We welcome students from 43 states and 22 countries to the Class of 2020.
Plan a Visit
The best way to learn about all that Davidson has to offer is to experience it in person. You can help a student plan an individual visit to include an information session and campus tour. Or you can plan a visit for yourself or for a group.
