What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
Be careful in selecting classes on Wednesdays. Also try to finish off your graduation requirements as soon as possible.
Emmanuel from Burlington, VT
Prospective students should definitely visit in person. Most students are from out of state, and travel may be difficult, but it is definitely worth it. College of the Atlantic can not be put into words, it is an experience in itself. I would advise students to apply for the Fall Fly-in before their senior year. For this program, students write a personal essay on a given topic and if they are selected, COA will provide an all-expenses paid trip to visit the college, stay in a dorm, and interview with a counselor.

The people in the admissions office are welcoming and they just want to get to know you. You should come visit and see it for yourself. Schedule an interview while you are here and if you can't make it, at least, schedule a phone or Skype interview.

Bring rubber boots! Chances are you'll be wading in tidal pools and rivers. Come prepared to explore absolutely everything you have ever been interested in. Stop thinking for a minute about how college is usually run.
Alex from Cedarburg, WI
VISIT! It can be difficult to arrange travel and such, but visiting is worth it. There's so much about the college itself that can't be fully realized until you step on campus, smell the salt air, see the smiling faces that abound there, and explore a bit for yourself. Also, apply to the Fall Fly-In program. It's an amazing opportunity, and even if you don't get accepted, just applying can help you (I wasn't accepted, but received a $200 voucher to help pay for travel expenses when I went to visit the college anyway).
Meghan from Toms River, NJ
Visit. It's definitely an interesting place that attracts a unique crowd. It feels much different than it appears online.
