International Student Application Requirements & Deadlines
Admission to Connecticut College is competitive and highly selective. Each year, a class of 500 students is selected from approximately 5,000 applicants. Connecticut College seeks students from a variety of backgrounds - cultural, spiritual, sexual orientation, economic, racial, ethnic and geographical - who demonstrate academic and personal excellence.
