A Handbook for the Class of 2021

The First-Year Student Handbook is designed to help you plan and prepare for your first year at Vassar. You will find in these pages general statements and guidelines about the first year at Vassar and very specific statements about the philosophies and policies of all the academic departments and programs.

Updated annually each June, when we also mail a hard copy of the 2017/18 handbook to new students, sent by the Office of the Dean of First-Year Students.
