At Salem College, we seek young women with strong academic talent, motivation and character who will benefit from, and add to, the quality of life on campus. We accept applications from students of all religious, geographic, racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Your completed application will be considered individually. Acceptance to Salem is based on your school record, scores from the SAT I or ACT, extracurricular activities and information about your academic and personal qualification.
We encourage you to consider meeting with a member of our admissions staff for a personal interview, although it is not required. It’s a great way to get to learn more about Salem. As part of the interview, you’ll meet with a staff member in our Admissions Office, talk with our professors and students, sample a class and tour our beautiful campus.
