Undergraduate Admission

The Office of Undergraduate Admission holistically reviews each application for admission and selects from its applicants those students who are best qualified to study at Lasell University. 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 (if applicable); extracurricular involvement; personal statement or essay; and choice of academic program at Lasell.  The campus visit and personal interview are also weighted during a candidate's application review, as well as demonstrated interest in attending the University.  Interviews or campus visits can be arranged by contacting the Office of Admission by telephoning (617) 243-2225, or at http://www.lasell.edu/admissions/undergraduate-admission/schedule-a-campus-visit.html
