Application Review Process:

The Admissions Committee understands that grading standards vary from school to school, or from one course to another. Class rank provides some context in which to place the grades of students applying from a given school. Some schools also provide grade distribution charts. Finally, the Admissions Committee also considers whether the applicant's grade-point average or rank-in-class is weighted or unweighted.

The number of solid academic courses, including the number of honors or Advanced Placement-level courses, are considered during the application review process. Submission of standardized test scores (SAT-1 or ACT) is optional and applicants who choose not to submit SAT or ACT test scores will not be penalized in the review for admission.

Application Requirements:
  • A completed Common Application
  • An official high school transcript including senior grades
  • A letter of recommendation from a counselor or teacher
  • Standardized test scores (optional). Should you want your test scores included in your application review, the school code for the SAT is 3009 and the ACT code is 1782. Test scores must be submitted from the testing center.
  • A $50 non-refundable application fee
  • ZeeMee video to showcase your personality. Add your ZeeMee link to your Common Application (optional)

Students Say

Located in the liberal arts college haven of Worcester, MA, Assumption College is "a tight knit, faith-based community where everyone is part of a family." The small school focuses on "educating aware and prospective young adults to become active and productive members of society while maintaining human core values" through "service, meaningful discussions, and liberal arts classes." Assumption is definitely all about education ("especially if you are a science major"), but there is also "a big push for sports" at this Division II school, and perhaps as a result the college's sense of community is "amazing." "We are one school, we are Assumption," says a student. The "beyond helpful" professors here are "engaging," "approachable," and "have a diversity of teaching styles," as well as being "willing to talk to you whenever you need it and [caring] about your well-being." They "bring their personal experiences into the classroom" to make studies "interesting and enjoyable," and the application of the liberal arts curriculum to small classes means that students "receive a greater impact" from their learning. "The professors here at Assumption all love what they do and it is obvious in the classroom," says a junior. However, some do admit that the school is "limited on the number of courses offered" which "can make getting into classes a little difficult." This "very welcoming and inclusive institution" focuses on giving its student every resource possible to help them succeed and be happy; tutoring is provided at the academic center, campus jobs are "abundant," and the Career and Internship Center admirably aids students in finding jobs after graduation. "Guidance counselors, teachers, [and] coaches are truly a blessing to have at this college," says a student. Overall, Assumption "helps foster well rounded, creative, intelligent and caring young adults to be successful and morally sound in their future endeavors."

You’ll also have access to a variety of payment options, including a 10-month, interest-free payment plan.

The Assumption College Merit Scholarship Program is based on academic and cocurricular merit, not financial need. It reflects the College’s commitment to promoting a culture of academic excellence and leadership. All students who are accepted for admission to Assumption College are considered for scholarship awards, which range from $12,000 – $21,000.

In line with our mission, Assumption’s $25,000 Light the Way Scholarship is awarded to up to 50 students who utilize their abilities to Light the Way for others.

Students Say

Though there's a lack of socioeconomic diversity—"generally middle-class Caucasians [who] are heterosexual"—students can be separated into "studentathletes and non-student-athletes." Most students "come from Catholic upbringings or have attended Catholic school but are not necessarily religious." New England preppy is a classic style; girls are usually seen in "leggings, Ugg boots, a North Face jacket." People here are "generally happy" and "very sociable and approachable" in all aspects of the college; everyone is "courteous and [will] hold doors open or lend you a calculator in class if your forgot yours." Overall, the student body "is like no other": People "genuinely care about each other and it makes for a wonderful experience."

Overview

From The School


Location


Assumption College is located on a 185 acre private campus, nestled in a beautiful, residential neighborhood. When you step onto the campus you will feel the immediate sense of community.

The campus is just minutes from downtown Worcester, a bustling metropolitan mecca for the more than 35,000 students attending area colleges and universities. Businesses, government offices and nonprofit organizations provide our students with numerous internships and job opportunities. Assumption students also enjoy access to first-class restaurants and shops, museums, local sports teams and entertainment venues. Students enjoy the best of both worlds – a secure suburban setting with easy access to urban advantages.

Assumption offers a unique study abroad opportunity at its own campus in Rome, Italy. Staffed by full-time Assumption faculty, this semester-long experience lets students explore the country as a “living classroom.”

Campus Facilities & Equipment


Assumption is dedicated to providing enhanced, or new, learning and student life facilities.

The new Tsotsis Family Academic Center, a 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art academic building, contains 13 high-tech, flexible classrooms, seminar rooms, common study spaces, a 400-seat performance hall, a rehearsal room, a multi-purpose space, faculty offices for the Assumption Core Texts and Enduring Questions Program, the Business Studies Department, the Honors Program, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and a new Center for the Study of Ethics.

More than half a million dollars in renovations were recently completed in Taylor Dining Hall, the primary dining facility on campus that offers students an array of meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The recently constructed 8,800-square-foot Tinsley Campus Ministry Center expands and enriches programs that contribute to the spiritual formation of students.

The campus of the College's recently top-ten ranked study abroad program in Rome, Italy, underwent a $1 million renovation, creating a modern living and learning environment for students spending a semester studying in Rome.

Off-Campus Opportunities


Assumption encourages students to expand their horizons. In addition to the Rome campus, undergraduates can spend a semester or a year studying abroad – from France and England, to Japan, the Czech Republic and Australia, to name a few locations. Many students also augment their education and hone professional skills through local, regional, national and international internships. Assumption students have worked at diverse organizations around the globe, from the Department of Commerce, Central America Bureau and the Department of State (NAFTA Agreement), to Smith Barney, Fidelity, Morgan Stanley, ABC News, and the Alliance Francaise in Paris.

Students Say

Life at Assumption is great. It's "easy to meet new people" and "there is a great sense of belonging." "Assumption does a great job of getting people involved one way or another," says a student. The "beautiful, diverse and secured campus" is "easily recognizable" from brochures, and those who get to take advantage of it "are very invested in academics, sports, extracurriculars, and social experiences." There is always an activity going on and "always something to do if you want to get off campus" in the college town of Worcester. Housing is guaranteed all four years and around 90 percent of students choose to take advantage of this, but "weekends can be dead sometimes" when students leave campus.

The school is "strict as far as drinking goes": Make no mistake, Assumption is "a VERY Catholic school" that "has a very conservative feel." This doesn't mean there's not fun to be had; though during the week "everyone is either in the library or involved in clubs/sports," once Thursday hits "upperclassmen flock to Leits off campus while underclassmen stick to their dorms." "Friday and Saturday are the go to nights for parties" for those that choose to so; however, a large majority go to the events the campus activities board puts on "like Bingo Nights, movie nights, trivia, [and] family feud." "They are really fun and have some amazing prizes like iPads, TV, etc." says a student.
