Admissions

For the greater purpose. It's why we do everything we do.

At Bluffton, our sense of a greater purpose develops students of exceptional character and expansive vision.
Since 1899, we've been learning, experiencing and bettering the world together.

  • Guided by values: Christian values inspire us through discovery, community, respect and service. You will develop the confidence and skills needed to lead in your community and the world.
  • Shaped by experience: Whether it's research, internships or clinical practice, you will engage in an active curriculum that is tangible and paced to a changing world.
  • Committed to growth: Ninety-nine percent of graduates are employed or engaged in advanced study or long-term service within six months of graduation. Many Bluffton alumni go on to become leaders in their fields.
  • Rooted in community: At Bluffton, it's all about relationships. You will collaborate with a diverse community of peers; learn from trusted faculty, mentors and coaches; and grow in your spiritual journey. 

Here, We come together for something greater.

We offer an exceptional education that prepares students for impactful careers. But more than that, you will be challenged to think critically and grow in confidence so you are ready for a life of passion and purpose.
