There are a few reasons why someone might be ineligible to apply to Deep Springs. At this time, we cannot consider applicants who do not identify as male. We also do not consider applicants who have already completed a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent at another institution, or are over the age of 23 (at the application deadline).
Transfer students who have not completed a four-year degree are welcome to apply. There are no special deadlines or processes for transfer students, but they must submit transcripts from their college-level careers in addition to secondary school transcripts. Regardless of prior college experience, every student enters Deep Springs as a “first-year”.
The full-scholarship for tuition, room, and board is awarded automatically to all admitted students, regardless of financial need, country of origin, or any other considerations. Admitted students in financial need can consult with the Academic Dean to receive funding assistance for books, travel, and incidental expenses.
