Applying to F&M
FINDING THE RIGHT FIT
Our application process abounds with options -- much like what you’ll experience as a student here.
Choose Early Decision if you are sure that Franklin & Marshall is the best fit, or the Standardized Test Option if you would prefer that we not use your Standardized Test Scores in the decision-making process. Please note, F&M will take the highest score of each section from each SAT or ACT test date to best represent the student (superscore). We encourage you to apply online to ensure your application is processed quickly and correctly.
When it comes down to it, picking the college that you will attend is your choice. But first, you have to apply.
