Visit Spelman College

As one of the nation's leading liberal arts institutions, Spelman educates women who will change the world, and we invite you to come and experience everything the institution has to offer. Located five minutes from downtown Atlanta, Spelman is a historic landmark that sits on 39 lush acres. Generations of wise women and men have devoted their time and energy to build this house of learning, and have set a table of academic opportunity for students.

Important On-Campus Visit Update

Spelman College made the difficult decision to suspend large campus gatherings as we work to limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All campus recruitment activities continue to be canceled, including scheduled family and group tours. In place of on-campus events & visits, the Office of Admissions is hosting various virtual information sessions and events throughout the year to connect with prospective students
