With the admission of the class of 2020, Spelman College has once again secured its ranking as a “highly selective” liberal arts college. Our acceptance rate of 35% means we attract the best and the brightest students to our campus. However, this figure alone only tells one part of the Spelman story.
Give because Spelman selects academically and socially stellar students, regardless of financial need. The class of 2020 is an impressive group of scholars of whom you would be proud. They have already overcome tremendous obstacles yet they boast an average GPA above 3.6, with more than 50% of these students coming from households with annual incomes below $40,000. Meeting the financial need of deserving students like this remains a top priority for the College and with your support, we can do just that.
Make your gift today so deserving Spelman students can continue to triumph. Making your gift by June 30 allows the College to increase support for students throughout their academic journey and helps to ensure they can excel and thrive through graduation and beyond.
