Vassar View

Sunday, October 7 - Tuesday, October 9, 2018

The Vassar View program offers high-achieving high school seniors from diverse backgrounds an immersive introduction to the Vassar College campus. During the three-day program, participants experience academic and social life at Vassar first hand by staying in a residential house with a current student, attending a class, eating in the dining hall, exploring our beautiful 1000-acre campus, and attending campus events.

Vassar covers the cost of this program for all participants including on-campus accommodations, meals, and transportation. Modes of transportation to Vassar will vary depending on a student’s point of departure and may involve plane, train, bus, or car. We are unable to provide transportation assistance for students and family members visiting campus outside of the Vassar View program.

Vassar View is designed to support high school seniors from historically underrepresented groups in higher education, such as students from ethnically diverse backgrounds, students who are the first in their family to pursue a four-year college education, and those from families with limited financial resources. Due to the limited duration of the program, only students living in the United States with U.S. citizenship, Permanent Residency or undocumented/DACA are eligible for consideration.

The Vassar View application will open mid-July. In addition to completing the online application, students will also need to submit their transcript (an unofficial copy is acceptable) showing final grades through the end of 11th grade. All students interested in participating in Vassar View should submit their complete application no later than Friday, September 7th, 2018.
