First-Year Students

We welcome approximately 675 first-year students each year who share a commitment to academic adventure and community participation while bringing diverse backgrounds and talents to our campus. Our admission process is selective; however, we are equally committed to enrolling students who will benefit from and contribute to life at Puget Sound. We look forward to reading your application.

If you have any questions regarding applying to Puget Sound, please send an email or call the Office of Admission at 253.879.3211. You may also contact your admission counselor.

In order to simplify the application process for our prospective students and uphold our commitment to environmental responsibility, Puget Sound will be using the Common Application for freshman exclusively for the upcoming admission cycle.
