Does Lasell University require GRE/GMAT scores?
No, you are not required to submit a GRE/GMAT score.

Why doesn't Lasell require GRE/GMAT scores?
Beginning your graduate education is a big decision, and once you decide to attend, you want to get started. At Lasell, we don't want to create any obstacles for working professionals ready to begin their master's degree.

How fast can I complete my master's degree?
Students who choose to study full-time (9 credits per semester) can complete the program in as few as 12 months. On average, students who study on a part-time basis (6 credits or less) will complete in 18 months.

Will I be assigned an advisor?
Yes, Lasell University graduate students are assigned a dedicated advisor that will guide you through your educational journey. Your advisor will assist you with course planning and academic policies and be a resource during your program.

What is a hybrid course?
We define a hybrid as a course delivered online and is complemented by on-campus meetings, typically one night every other week.

How do online courses work?
The online courses run in 8-week sessions and are accelerated. The fast pace requires students to be engaged daily, while the asynchronous nature allows students to choose when to complete work within assignment deadlines.

 Once I apply to the program, how long will it take to receive a decision?
Students who complete their admission file by submitting all required documents will learn of a decision within a week or two.

I haven't been in a classroom for a long time. How do I know that I'm prepared?
Returning to the classroom can be intimidating, but you'll be amazed at how the skills you have acquired as a working professional will go to work for you in the classroom. Time management, the ability to work in groups, and problem-solving are just a few examples.

I never feel I have the time to begin my master's. Do you have any suggestions?
Pursuing your master's degree will definitely require balancing work, home, and study. You have to be prepared to plan your time wisely and make earning your master's a priority.

I want to begin studies at the graduate-level, but I'm not certain where to begin. Should I pursue a degree or a certificate?
