Skidmore welcomes first year students

Accepted Candidate Days
Class of 2021

Choose one: April 7, 12, 17, 2017

(If you are unable to visit campus on any of the dates listed above, you may also attend a group information session and campus tour on any week day or Saturday in April. Please see our Visit Page for tour times and to reserve a space in a group information session.)

Attending one of Skidmore's three Accepted Candidate Days makes great sense, whether you're undecided about your final college choice or have decided to come to Skidmore.
You and your family can meet other members of the Class of 2020 and their families, interact with faculty, coaches, and staff and sample what Skidmore has to offer in the sciences, arts, sports, clubs, and more. You will also want to save time to explore Saratoga Springs, a great college town!


RSVPs are required. Register below or call us at 518-580-5585.
