Do I have to live on campus?
Lawrence is a residential college--by design and policy--and students are required to live on campus. Exceptions are granted only to fifth-year students (including those starting their fifth year after high school), married students, students with a documented domestic partner, and/or students with dependent children.
Can you evaluate my transcripts before I apply?
Yes, if you would like an informal evaluation, you may send a copy of your college transcript with an email and attach your unofficial transcript requesting an assessment to the transfer counselor, Chuck Erickson. Please note that this informal assessment is provisional and not binding.
Are transfer students eligible for scholarships?
If I applied to Lawrence before, must I reapply?
If you completed an application to Lawrence within the past year, you may reactivate your previous application folder by writing or emailing the admissions office. There is no application fee required for reactivation. Refer to the checklist to see what items you anticipate we still need to complete your file. Otherwise we will notify you of any outstanding documents. Please contact Chuck to re-open your application.
Do you consider freshman applications midyear?
Lawrence typically discourages applications for Term II or Term III from students who have completed only one term of coursework elsewhere or who have not previously enrolled at a college following high school graduation. (This is due to the unique nature of Freshman Studies, a two-term course for first-year students, and because a new student orientation is offered only in the fall.)
