Simmons College formalizes its undergraduate admission policy for transgender applicants

Simmons College, comprised of an undergraduate women's college and several graduate schools, sent out a notice to its alums today with this link that formalizes its admissions policy for transgender applicants to its undergraduate program. In a tweet to me earlier today, they said that it was a policy that has already been in place for some time, but that they wanted to put it in writing now.

All applicants to the undergraduate program who were assigned female at birth and/or applicants who self-identify as women are eligible to apply for admission. Simmons does not require government issued documentation for purposes of identifying an applicant's gender identity. Once enrolled, any student who completes the College's baccalaureate requirements will be awarded a Simmons degree regardless of gender identity or expression.
