The Katharine E. McBride Scholars Program

The Katharine E. McBride Scholars Program was created to give women, 24 years of age or above, who for one reason or another did not begin or complete their education immediately following high school, an opportunity to attend Bryn Mawr College.

Applicants under the McBride program are required to submit either The Common Application or The Coalition Application in addition to the items listed below.

  • All official high school transcripts or GED equivalent (Secondary School Final Report is not required)
  • All official college transcripts
  • Two Instructor Evaluations*
  • SAT I or ACT and TOEFL or IELTS (if applicable)

*McBride Scholar applicants who have not attended college within the last three years may submit letters of reference from recommenders other than professors.

Once admitted to the College, McBride scholars are subject to the residency rule, which requires a student to take a minimum of 24 course units while enrolled at Bryn Mawr. Exceptions will be made for students who transfer more than eight units from previous work. Such students may transfer up to 16 units and must then take at least 16 units at Bryn Mawr. McBride Scholars may study on a part-time or full-time basis.

Bryn Mawr College accepts both The Common Application and The Coalition Application. There is no application fee. For more information about applying to Bryn Mawr, please visit www.brynmawr.edu/admissions/apply.
