Application Selection Process
Our application selection process is a holistic one, giving students the chance to be recognized for their individual talents, intellect and achievements. Applicants may either self-report or submit official standardized test scores for the application review process. All enrolling students must submit official scores.
New Self-Reporting Scores Policy
Please note that beginning this year, consistent with the college's long-standing commitment to access and affordability, we accept self-reported test scores. Only those applicants who are admitted and enroll are required to submit official score reports.
Undocumented and DACA Student Resources
Davidson continues to expand its resources and expertise in supporting the development and education of undocumented students and students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status. We encourage interested applicants to apply for admission regardless of their immigration status.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
