Apply to Lawrence
At Lawrence, we understand the educational upheaval of the last months has made it difficult for some students to meet the original Lawrence admissions deadline of January 15. In response, we have added an additional Regular Decision deadline of February 15. We hope this extra time will enable students to submit the best application to Lawrence they can and ease the stress of this difficult time.
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. We look forward to hearing from you.
