London FYE Admissions

How do I apply for the London First Year Experience?
To be considered for the London First Year Experience, simply select the "Saratoga or London" option under preferred residence on the Common Application. Accepted students will be notified of their London admissions decision in their acceptance packet.

Please note: All students must be 18 years old by the start of the program in London (August 26, 2021, for the 2020–2021 Admissions cycle).

Will applying for the London FYE affect my chances for admission to Skidmore?
No. All applicants must meet the same academic requirements for admission to Skidmore. Once we have made our admissions decisions, admitted students who have applied for the London program will be evaluated separately for admission to the London FYE.

If I am admitted to the London FYE, am I required to participate?
No. You can choose to enroll on the Saratoga campus or in London when you submit your enrollment form. Once you have submitted your enrollment form, your decision is binding.

How do I enroll in the London FYE?
To enroll in the London FYE, please follow the instructions provided in your acceptance packet.

You must submit all other London-related materials to the Office of Off-Campus Study and Exchanges.
