Parents and students at a Lasell Open House

Welcome, parents and family members of prospective Lasell University students!

In the Lasell Office of Undergraduate Admission, we know the college admission process is exciting — and that you probably also have many questions. We’re here to help, both by providing the resources below, and by being available by phone at (617) 243-2225 or email at


Our beautiful 54-acre campus blends suburban comfort and security with the benefit of being just 8 miles from Boston, with two MBTA stations nearby. We offer a variety of options for visiting campus.


Students at Lasell have a wide variety of options for living on campus or commuting, joining our more than 70+ clubs and organizations, choosing among dining offerings, and accessing health and wellness care. 


Our admission process is straightforward. Your student submits a complete application for admission through the Common Application or on our website. Along with the application, we require students to submit an essay, transcript, and letter of recommendation. Test scores (SAT, ACT) are always optional at Lasell.

We offer two types of admission: Early Action and Regular Decision. Your student may apply for Early Action admission in the fall, with an annual application deadline of Nov. 15. Early Action decisions are released in mid-December. Regular Decision admission takes place after that on a rolling basis. Upon applying, your student is paired with an experienced Undergraduate Admission Counselor who will be in touch with them every step of the way.


Lasell offers 60+ undergraduate majors and minors, along with a variety of programs to help students tailor their undergraduate academic experience. 


Lasell provides students with resources for academic assistance as well as career planning — all beginning in your student’s first year.


Upon admission to Lasell, your student is automatically considered for a Lasell University Award. This Award, which does not need to be repaid, is based on a holistic review of the student’s academic record. Your student should also apply for financial aid, which begins by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at Financial aid may include institutional grants, state and federal grants, federal loans, or work-study.
