The Hamilton admission staff views its partnership with school counselors as one of our most valued resources.

In an effort to be as transparent and collaborative as possible — and to assist you in counseling your students — we’ve assembled the information on this website. If you have questions or ideas for ways we can be more helpful, please contact us.

Suspension of Testing Requirement

At this time, applicants can choose to submit standardized testing scores, but they will not be required to apply for admission. (Please note that some applicants for whom English is not their native language will still be required to submit the results of an English-language proficiency exam.)

Counselor Portal

The Hamilton College Admission Office has established a portal for counselors through Slate.org.

Visit Us

The best way for students — and counselors — to learn more about Hamilton is to experience it for themselves. We realize that an in-person campus visit may not always be possible, so we have many options to engage with us – on campus or virtually.
