Update About Spring Visits

Bucknell is continuously tracking the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and working to mitigate potential risks it poses. The safety of students — both current and future — as well as our faculty and staff is our top priority.

As such, we have cancelled on-campus visits, including tours and preview programs, until further notice. 

We know this news will be disappointing to you and your fellow members of the Class of 2024. We're disappointed, too. But please make note of two important points:

  • Our preparations continue for your arrival this fall. We encourage you to watch your email for regular updates about class registration, housing, Pre-Orientation and Orientation programs, and more. 
  • While our in-person experience has been cancelled, we look forward to connecting with you on B2B, our admitted student network.

The Coronavirus and Your Final Semester of High School

We understand the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic may have changed the trajectory of your academic year. It has affected us, too.

Please send your transcripts to us as soon as you can, but know that we understand there are currently a lot of unanswered questions.

While we generally expect the remainder of your senior year of high school to be consistent with the academic and personal record presented in your application, rest assured that no matter what happens, we will work with you and be flexible.

Entrance Deferral

A student may elect to defer enrollment for one or two years after being admitted. Requests must be submitted in writing to any time between receipt of an offer of admission and July 10. A nonrefundable deposit will be required to hold this space.
