Access Davidson is a visit program that will take place October 16–18, 2022.

Who is eligible to be an Access Davidson participant?

While Access Davidson is open to all eligible high school seniors, the programming is designed to reach students from traditionally under-represented groups, including CBO-affiliated students. At this time, only students living and attending high school in the United States and Puerto Rico are eligible for consideration.

How do I apply for Access Davidson?

To be considered for the program, you must complete the online application, and upload your current high school transcript and a senior year schedule.

When can I expect to hear a decision about my Access Davidson application?

Students will be notified by the end of September.

How do I update my Access Davidson application?

If your senior year schedule changes from the time of your application submission or you have other application updates, please contact

Are there any costs associated with applying and/or participating in Access Davidson?

There is no cost to apply or participate in Access Davidson. If selected, we cover the cost of your transportation to/from campus, meals while you are with us, and overnight accommodations.

If I am not selected for Access Davidson, does that mean I wouldn’t be admitted to Davidson College? 

The outcome of your Access Davidson application does not impact your admission decision to Davidson College. In fact, we encourage you to still apply for admission! Every year there are qualified applicants who we are unable to invite to participate in Access Davidson simply because of space limitations. 

If I am unable to participate or am not selected for Access Davidson, are there other opportunities for a visit to Davidson College?

Those students who have not been on an official campus visit and who are not selected for the fall Access Davidson program are eligible for later visit opportunities in conjunction with admitted student programming. Admission officers nominate competitive applicants for the spring Access Davidson program as part of the application reading and evaluation process.

Who can I contact if I have more questions about the application process or program?

Please contact with any additional questions.
