As part of 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播's commitment to a diversity of perspectives and life experiences, the Office of Admission will be hosting Access to 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播(A2A) in the fall to introduce prospective applicants to Amherst's campus, student body, faculty, and classes. A2A is available to all prospective rising high school seniors who reside in the U.S., regardless of citizenship or background (non-US citizens who reside in the US, including undocumented students, are welcome to apply). The programming centers the experience of students from marginalized communities  鈥 such as African-American, Hispanic/Latinx American, Native American, and Asian-American students, first-generation students, students from families with limited financial resources, rural, urban Title I schools, and those who may not be able to visit campus on their own. A2A offers educational sessions on selective admission, affordability, liberal arts, and success in college.  Should you have an interest in attending, we encourage you to apply no matter your demographic or economic background.

Benefits of an A2A Application

In addition to the possibility of participating in A2A, submitting an application offers some other benefits:

  • A fee waiver for Amherst's admission application fee is provided to all students invited to participate in A2A. Some students who apply to A2A will also receive a waiver for the application fee to encourage their applications to Amherst, regardless of whether they are invited to participate in A2A.
  • Some students who apply to A2A will be invited to participate in a virtual Mock Application Workshop with admission deans, regardless of whether they are invited to participate in A2A.
  • A2A applicants who eventually decide to apply for admission to 澳门六合彩开奖现场直播 will have the option of using their A2A application essay in satisfaction of Amherst's Writing Supplement requirement.
