It probably started when you were a kid.
You started questioning why things work the way they do. You began taking apart electronics to see if you could put them back together. You reshot your favorite movie scenes, performed kitchen science experiments or ran a business in your front yard.
In short, you stepped off the beaten path to find your own way. That journey of learning, and all the experiences and discoveries along the way, has been leading you to something great. At Bucknell University, we're ready to help you get there.
How to Apply
You'll apply to Bucknell using either the Coalition Application (powered by Scoir) or the Common Application — it's your choice.
The first deadline for admission into the Class of 2028 (Early Decision I) is Nov. 15, 2023. Early Decision II and Regular Decision applications are due by Jan. 15, 2024.
We'll review each application personally, looking far deeper than test scores and GPA to find students who are engaged in the world around them and passionately in pursuit of their own distinct purpose.
