Undergraduate Admission

Each year the Office of Undergraduate Admission holistically reviews and selects from its applicants those students who are best qualified to benefit from a course of study at Lasell College. Many factors are considered when evaluating applicants for undergraduate admission: scholastic record; personal evaluations of the applicant submitted by faculty or counselors at either the secondary school or college/university level; scores on standardized tests; extracurricular involvements; personal statement or essay; and choice of academic program at Lasell.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission admits qualified students without regard to age, gender, race, color, disability, national or ethnic origin, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation.

It is strongly suggested that applicants visit campus and arrange an interview. Families, parents and guardians are encouraged to accompany the applicant to campus. Interviews or campus visits can be arranged by contacting the Office of Admission by telephoning (617) 243-2225, or online at www.lasell.edu.
