Colby Admissions Goals

  • Admit self-directed learners who want to dive headfirst into research projects in all subjects.
  • Increase campus diversity by admitting intellectually ambitious students of color. Learn more about our annual Experience Colby event.
  • Emphasize global education through an increasingly international student body.
  • Enroll students from Maine who want international experiences while staying close to home.
  • Provide educational opportunities for students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. It’s free to apply online, Colby meets 100 percent of determined financial need for all admitted students, and Colby does not assign loans in financial aid packages.

Counselor Visits

The Colby admissions team welcomes visits from school counselors, independent counselors, and CBO advisors year-round. Please contact the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid for assistance in planning a comprehensive and informative visit.
