Goals and Commitments

  • Admit intellectually ambitious learners who will benefit from close relationships with faculty mentors and excel in a challenging, supportive community. Learn more about student-faculty collaboration.
  • Increase campus diversity of all kinds. Learn more about our annual Experience Colby events.
  • Provide educational opportunities for students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. It’s free to apply for admission, Colby meets 100 percent of calculated financial need for all admitted students, and the College does not assign loans in financial aid packages.
