Bates College is located on a rural campus in Lewiston, ME, about three hours from Boston. It has around 1,800 undergraduate students, about 8% of whom are from other countries, and accepts approximately 42% of early-decision applicants and 9% of regular-decision applicants.
The SAT or ACT is not required at Bates for international students. The average TOEFL score for admission is 100.
Bates meets students’ full need with financial aid but is need-aware in admissions for international students (those who request financial assistance are less likely to be admitted). The average financial-aid award for international students is approximately US$64,000 per year. Middlebury does not grant merit-based scholarships to international students.
