Application Process

Each year the Office of Undergraduate Admission holistically reviews and selects from its applicants those students who seem best qualified to benefit from a course of study at Lasell College. Many factors are considered when evaluating applicants for undergraduate admission:

  • Scholastic record
  • The applicant's personal interview
  • Recommendations submitted by faculty or counselors at either the high school or college/university level
  • College essay
  • Extracurricular involvement or work experience
  • Choice of academic program at Lasell
  • If applicable, standardized testing results (see Lasell's Test-Optional Policy)

Lasell College reviews completed applications for entry to the Fall (September) term, as well as for entry to the Spring (January) term.
