Steeped in a tradition of cultivating the intellectual and professional growth of women, Simmons College is a warm and engaging community with a national reputation of academic excellence. Founded in 1899, Simmons was the first college in the United States to offer women a liberal arts education integrated with career preparation and leadership.
Located in the historic Fenway neighborhood of Boston, Simmons students say it’s the best of both worlds — a quintessential brick-and-ivy New England campus in the middle of a thriving city. Simmons’ beautiful, tree-lined campus is literally surrounded by music and fine arts, medical care and research, politics and grassroots activism, performance venues and the resounding cheers of Red Sox fans at legendary Fenway Park.
Transfer students are invited to dive right into a lively and transfer-friendly campus. Transfer students may apply to the Honors Program and take advantage of short-term travel courses and study abroad opportunities as well.
Simmons students choose from over 40 majors and have the option to combine diverse fields of interest to meet their academic and professional goals. Over 30 percent of Simmons students choose to double major, and many take advantage of the opportunity to enter into one of the College’s accelerated degree programs.
Exceptional internship, fieldwork and research opportunities allow students to develop confidence, impressive résumés and a network of professional contacts. Free student support services include the Writing Center, the Career Education Center and Resource Library, and the Academic Support Center.
Many of our transfer students live within our residential community, often paired with other incoming transfer students. Nine brick residence halls offering high-speed internet access and cable TV enclose a beautiful green courtyard.
