We would love to speak with you. Set up a virtual meeting with a current student, an admission counselor, financial aid counselor or other Reed community member.
You can meet with an admission counselor, talk with a current student, join an online information session, take a live virtual tour with a student, sit in on a virtual class, join us for special programming, or watch some of our recorded sessions here.
Finally, spend some time on our website or join one of the events scheduled for the campus community, we'll get you signed up.
One-on-one, personal on-campus visits are available for students who have submitted their application. Space is limited.
In order to support the health of our campus community and visitors, we invite interested students who have submitted their applications to schedule on-campus visits online.
In addition to the information we receive from high schools, students may provide information on how the pandemic impacted them in the Community Disruption section of the application. Students may also contact their admission counselor.
Reed is now test-blind, meaning we will neither require nor use testing results from the SAT or ACT in our admission review for the fall 2021 and fall 2022 cycles.
We invite students to submit or self-report completed test scores for the sake of future policy evaluation. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
No, AP and IB scores are a welcome part of the application process, but not required.

The first deposit of $400 is due by May 1 for Early Action and Regular Decision students; sooner for Early Decision candidates. The deposit reserves your place in the class and will enable you to register for housing and classes on time. If you have questions or concerns about the May 1 deposit deadline, please contact email@example.com.
Admitted first-year students may request to defer entrance for one year once they have paid their first $400 non-refundable enrollment deposit.
Students who wish to request deferred entrance must send a written detailed plan for the deferral year to the Vice President and Dean of Admission & Financial Aid by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 15th. Deferral requests will not be considered without an enrollment deposit.
Approximately 50 percent of deferral requests are granted. Transfer students and students admitted from the waitlist are not eligible for deferral except under certain circumstances.
Under specific conditions we may grant an extension for the decision deadline. Contact your admission counselor for more information.
Please contact email@example.com to learn more about the financial aid appeal process. You may also register for a virtual meeting with a financial aid counselor.
