You asked: when will Skidmore send out I 20 form to international students who get admitted?

Hi there,

I would recommend contacting Darren Drabek, International Student Coordinator through Student Academic Services, at ddrabek@skidmore.edu or 518-580-8150. That office handles I-20 forms and any other questions you may have about being an admitted international student at Skidmore!

Thanks for the question!

You asked: Is it true that it won’t hurt an applicant if they don’t submit SAT subject tests as part of their application for admission?

Hi there,

We do not require SAT IIs and if a student does not submit them it will not hurt their chances. We recommend them for placement purposes once students enroll at Skidmore.

Hope that helps!

You asked: I understand that it is recommended that prospective students submit SAT subject tests as part of their application for admission. I can’t seem to find that requirement on the web site. Are subject tests , in fact, recommended and, if so, how many?

You asked: Academic scholarships

Hi there,

Skidmore’s financial aid is 99% need-based. We require the College Board’s PROFILE financial aid application in order to determine a student’s eligibility for grant assistance.

We do have two non-need based scholarships, the Filene Music Scholarship (culminating in a competition) and the Porter Math/Science scholarship, recipients are selected by a faculty committee. Here’s more info about the Filene Scholarship: http://cms.skidmore.edu/music/scholarships/filene.cfm and more info about the Porter: http://cms.skidmore.edu/science/scholarships/porter.cfm.

Hope that helps!

You asked: I’m on the wait list. When should I expect to hear back? Thanks!

Hi there,

Since the deadline to accept is tomorrow (May 1) we’re still not sure how many students will enroll at Skidmore yet. Once we know those numbers we’ll determine if we will go to students who are on the active waitlist. In recent years it’s been as many as 120 and as few as zero. So hopefully within the coming weeks.

Hope that helps!

Ask us a question about Skidmore!

You asked: Hey Skidmore! I’ve become really interested in taking a gap year to get a better handle on my interests so I can become more focused on my future before entering Skidmore. What is the policy on admission deferral?

Hello!

This is a great question and I am happy to answer it. You can absolutely take a gap year before coming to Skidmore.

Before you do, you must submit a written letter addressed to Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid, Mary Lou Bates, detailing the reasons why you’d like to defer. You can send the letter to:

Skidmore College
815 N. Broadway
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

Also, you can’t maintain matriculated status at any other school during that year.

Hope that helps!

You asked: How many students were wait listed for Opportunity Program this year?

Hi there,

The Opportunity Program maintains their own list separate from Admissions so I would try calling Carrie Fonda at 518-580-5770 or e-mailing her at conda@skidmore.edu. She should be able to help you out.

Hope that helps,

Ask us a question about Skidmore!

You asked: do you you have any graduate studies?

Hi and hello there,

Skidmore does offer a graduate program. We call it MALS or Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. The MALS program is a low-residency graduate degree designed for working adults.

Students work one on one with Skidmore faculty and handcraft individualized concentrations in every area of the liberal arts. After taking a weeklong introductory seminar on campus, students typically complete the rest of their coursework at a distance through individualized tutorials with Skidmore professors, in-class courses at universities near their homes, supervised internships, and/or study abroad.

Studying part-time, students take an average of three years to complete the program’s 30 credits. For more information about the MALS program, check out: http://cms.skidmore.edu/mals/.

Hope that helps!

You asked: standardized testing ?

Hi there,

Skidmore College requires either the SAT or ACT with no preference for either one. I don’t know the fall 2012 numbers yet, but for the current freshmen the average SAT on admits (1600 point scale) was 1310 and the average ACT on admits was 30.

Hope that helps!
