Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Apply early.
  • Demonstrate diversity in your learning. For example, gain experience with technology or get international experience.
  • Go to an open house at Chatham and introduce yourself to your admissions counselor. If she knows you, she'll have a greater investment in helping you with the application process.
  • Just apply! Chatham is very nonselective.
  • Keep your high school GPA high.
  • Take advantage of Chatham's SAT-optional application if your SAT scores are not where you'd like them to be or if you haven't taken the SAT yet.
  • Take AP classes in high school.
  • Visit campus. Not only will you get a feel for whether Chatham is the right school for you, but you'll also make valuable connections with the admissions department, which will help you in the application process.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Braun, Falk, and Coolidge are all one building.
  • Chatham has a very significant lesbian and bisexual population, and some students transition between orientations while at Chatham.
  • In college, 8 a.m. classes are much harder to get up for than they were in high school.
  • Pittsburgh has quite a few hills, so be sure to bring good walking shoes.
  • The graduate students have been moved to a different campus.
  • Weekends on campus aren't very exciting, although Student Activities has attempted to change this. This is a great time to explore off campus.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Interviews with admissions counselors are typically held after a tour during a campus visit or overnight visit. To schedule a stand-alone interview, call the admissions office at (412) 365-1825 and ask to speak with your admissions counselor. For out-of-state students, interviews can often be conducted by phone. Interviews are not necessary, and Chatham University has a lenient admissions policy, so do not worry if you are unable to have an interview!
Campus Tours
Campus tours are available Monday through Friday at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 2 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. To schedule a tour, call Admissions at (412) 365-1825 or email them at admission@chatham.edu.
Overnight Visits
Overnight visits are coordinated on an individual basis and can be scheduled through the Admissions office. On overnight visits, students have the opportunity to attend classes, eat meals in the dining hall, and stay overnight in one of the residence halls with an admissions ambassador host.

Did You Know?
  • Chatham students can call, email, instant message, or Facebook message the Chatham ambassadors, which is a team of undergraduate students who work in Admissions to help prospective students learn more about Chatham. Their information is available on Chatham's website.
  • Each undergraduate class is pinned with its colors upon matriculation to the University. Each year, one of the four colors is passed down from graduating seniors to incoming first-years. The class colors are: green, rose, yellow, and red.
  • The College for Women motto is: "Filiae Nostrae Sicut Antarii Lapides" or "That our daughters may be as cornerstones (polished after the similitude of a palace)"-from Psalm 144.
  • The College for Women's colors are purple and white, while the official Chatham University colors are green and white. The colors were chosen because of the American and British suffrage movements of the late 19th century, and the early 20th century adopted the colors green, purple, and white to advance their causes. Many women's colleges from these time periods also adopted the same colors in testimony to women's suffrage. Therefore, the original colors of Chatham College for Women remain purple and white.
