Admissions at Bryn Athyn College

At Bryn Athyn College, we take a holistic approach to reviewing admissions. We are looking for students who want strong academics based on spiritual principles. If you are interested in living in an environment based on shared values and mutual respect, if you want to participate in academic and spiritual inquiry, and if you are looking for professors who will support you individually and help you work toward your goals, please consider Bryn Athyn College.

It’s About Choosing a Direction

We operate on a rolling admissions policy, which means that we accept applications year round. When you begin your application, our admissions staff will be on-hand to help you complete the process. And the sooner you submit an application, the sooner you’ll receive an admissions decision; so there’s no reason not to apply early.

Bryn Athyn is a liberal arts college, which means that here, you will be challenged to think independently, develop your ideas, and decide what you stand for. As a Bryn Athyn College student, you’ll receive all the benefits of our Core Program, which will give you a solid academic foundation as well as the skills you’ll need for your future career. You will study directly under our talented faculty members, and have ample opportunities for international study, internships, and hands-on research. If you provide the drive and hard work, a Bryn Athyn College education will equip you for graduate school, for your career, and for life.

It’s About a Sense of Belonging

At Bryn Athyn College, we believe a college education should open minds, sharpen skills, and cultivate in each person a desire to live a meaningful, useful life. Our friendly, intellectually challenging, and socially diverse environment, both inside the classroom and out, supports these goals. If Bryn Athyn College sounds like the kind of place where you could thrive, we warmly invite you to come for a visit.

There’s no way to describe the friendliness and warmth of our campus—you just have to experience it for yourself. Come meet our students and professors, and you’ll see what we mean.
