Apply to Lawrence
November 1 is the deadline for both Early Decision and Early Action 1 application programs.
Early Decision is best if Lawrence is your first choice and you intend to enroll if you are admitted and if your financial package makes it possible for you to attend Lawrence. In addition to the benefit of closing out your college search and moving on to the business of being a Lawrentian, you'll also be eligible for priority financial aid and priority housing consideration. If you are admitted as an Early Decision applicant to Lawrence, you will need to withdraw your applications from any other colleges to which you applied and submit your enrollment deposit by December 15.
Early Action 1 is a great option to be considered early for admission. You will hear back from us by December 15. You'll have until May 1 to consider your offer of admission and enroll at Lawrence.
We accept either the Common Application or the Lawrence Application with no preference for one over the other. Lawrence University does not charge an application fee.
