Areas Impacted by Natural Disasters

Accommodations for high school students from areas impacted by natural disasters

We understand that in the aftermath of natural disasters like Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the wildfires in California, and Super Typhoon Mangkhut, the details of college application materials and deadlines may cause added stress. We hope to make the process easier for you by offering the following accommodations to provide some relief in the application process. 

  • Application deadline extensions, if needed.
  • Submission of recommendation letters will be waived for those impacted by natural disasters.
  • Optional: Students may submit a scanned copy of a graded paper if recommendation letters will not be part of the application.

If there are other ways in which we may help you complete an application to Bowdoin College, please email admissions@bowdoin.edu or call 207-725-3100.
