Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus issues, THE ADMISSIONS & FINANCIAL AID OFFICES ARE OPERATING REMOTELY and our team is available to connect with you and answer your Admissions and Financial Aid-related questions. Please let us know how we can help you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Together, we’ll get through this.

Learning about your personal story is at the essence of our admissions process. Our “fit selectivity” is driven by students’ intellectual hunger, community engagement and reasons for choosing Farmington. We’re looking for a great fit. It’s simple — we admit outstanding students who will bring vibrancy, life experiences and positive energy and enthusiasm to our campus.
