Getting to Know Simmons!

The Personalized Approach


At Simmons College, we recognize that each adult student brings her own distinct life experiences and personal story. We value your story and we value how you would add to the richness and diversity of the Simmons community. How do we show this? Through personalizing your educational experience from the moment you decide to apply.

Here are some of the numerous ways that Simmons takes the personalized approach as it partners with Dix Scholars, who, like yourself, are women 24 years or older or who seek a second bachelor's degree.

  • Admission Counselors Devoted to You
