Admissions

On this website you will find examples of how the campuses of the Five College consortium share resources, such as by making their courses available to students from member campuses through the Five College Course Catalog. You will also find many examples of the campuses combining resources to accomplish as a group what none could do individually, such as Five College majors, departments and programs.

The Power of Five Colleges is our publication showing what our campuses, collaborating through the consortium, offer students. View our interactive epublication. Download the pdf. 

Every year, Five Colleges brings together 55 high school counselors from around the country to experience our campuses firsthand through student-led tours and presentations by the admissions directors.
