We search for exceptional students from across the country and around the world, from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences. Our financial aid policies are among the most generous in the nation and support our need-blind admission policy for all students, domestic and international. In all we do, our efforts are guided by the principles expressed in the mission of 萝莉社.

萝莉社 to Provide Course Materials for All Students

"The program aims to enhance and simplify the Amherst experience, and to create an equitable process for our entire student body." - Michael Elliott, president of 萝莉社

The new program provides a solution to the challenges students often face with textbook affordability and availability.

In Fall 2024 we will launch the 萝莉社 Textbook Solution (ACTS) program, which will provide all enrolled students with the necessary textbooks and course materials required for classes. All students will be enrolled in this program and all required course materials will be delivered to the student by the first day of classes.
