School Overview

Haverford College, located in Haverford Pennsylvania, is a private, four-year, liberal arts college that offers undergraduate bachelor’s degree programs. Nearly all Haverford students live on campus.

Haverford was established by the Quakers in 1833 in an effort to provide the younger members of its religious society a higher education based on Quaker values. Today, Haverford College is still influenced by Quaker philosophies, although it is no longer directly affiliated with Quaker religious organizations.

Up until the early 1970s the College was an all-male institution. However, by 1980, Haverford College had become fully coeducational. Today, over fifty percent of the college’s students are female. In an asserted effort, Haverford maintained its enrollment below 300 for over a century. However, in the 1970s the college began to expand. Currently, over 1,190 students attend the college.

Haverford is one of three colleges that make up the Tri-College Consortium, which also includes Bryn Mawr College and Swarthmore College. The three liberal arts colleges enjoy a special relationship that allows students to take courses at any of the other two colleges, once accepted to Haverford. The college is also a member of the Quaker Consortium which allows students to register for classes at the College of General Studies (CGS) and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
