Admission Criteria

Lasell University sign

Lasell University takes a holistic approach to evaluating applicants for undergraduate admission, including the following:

  • Scholastic record
  • Faculty/counselors recommendations
  • Extracurricular involvement or work experience
  • College essay
  • Expressed field of study, & more.

Personal Interview (optional)

While a personal interview with an Undergraduate Admission Counselor is not required, it is highly recommended. An interview provides the Admission team the opportunity to get to know you beyond your application. It also offers you a more in-depth understanding of the Admission process. Interviews are scheduled for 30 minutes and can be combined with a campus visit; register here for either or both.
