Skidmore College


Your Skidmore story starts now.

You shared stories of accomplishments and triumphs. We read and heard your inspirations, your dreams, your visions for yourself. And we came to an exciting conclusion: We believe in you. And for us, belief leads to more than just an acceptance — it’s an invitation.

You're invited ...

to begin the next chapter in your life story. What will it say? At a college where Creative Thought Matters, anything is possible.

While we believe Skidmore may be the school for you, we know you have a lot to consider. You’re invited to use this site as a starting point to answering and exploring the questions and opportunities you have ahead of you. We’ll be updating this area frequently, so be sure to check back often for the latest information. 

Above all, congratulations.

We’re so proud of you already.


We are so excited to welcome you to Skidmore College and have prepared this special video experience to replicate our Accepted Candidate Day — virtually. Simply click play on the welcome video below and navigate through this playlist via the button in the top right. Enjoy!
