At Davidson College, we are continuously grateful for the work our school and community-based organization counselors do to support our students. We hope to be the best partners we can be as we counsel students through the admission and financial aid process, so we have compiled resources that may be helpful as you work with students.

Meet Our Students: Class of 2027 Profile
We know you've got lots of questions about the newest admitted class to Davidson.
How many students applied? How many were admitted? How many applied test-optional? Where are your applicants coming from?
Guiding Your Student Through the Process
Davidson offers Early Decision I and II, as well as Regular Decision. Counselors may submit transcripts and supporting materials through Naviance, National Student Clearing House, Parchment, ScribeOrder-U, and SCOIR. Transcripts ONLY may be submitted through CFNC.
Select your student's application type to review application deadlines and requirements, as well as advice on counseling your student to be the most competitive candidate for admission possible.
Requesting a Fee Waiver
There is no application fee for students utilizing the QuestBridge application or those attending high school outside of the United States and Puerto Rico.
For domestic students, if the application fee poses a financial hardship, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a fee waiver. We won't ask for financial verification, and requesting a fee waiver will never disadvantage your application for admission in any way.
The move, made in Spring 2022, turns what had been a pandemic-era pilot program into permanent policy. Students have the option to include their scores from the SAT or ACT, if desired. It speaks to Davidson’s commitment to access and reflects our belief that, while tests provide some useful information, other aspects of an applicant’s academic journey better reflect how they will perform and thrive at the college.
Domestic students and permanent residents are considered for admission at Davidson without regard for their financial resources, and we are proud to have been the first liberal arts college in the nation to eliminate loans from financial aid packages.
Sticker price is never the full story. More than half of our students receive need-based aid, and 70 percent receive aid from some source. Utilize our tools and learn from our experts to counselor your students into making the best investment possible.
We invite school counselors, heads of school, or college access program directors to nominate outstanding students to compete for the John M. Belk Scholarship, Davidson’s flagship award. Nominations are due by November 1.
Helping Students Find Their Home
We care as much as you that students find a fit for their next four years where they can feel a sense of support, empowerment and belonging. That's why our resources and support go beyond our generous financial aid packages, scholarships and need-blind admission policy.
