Undergraduate Admission and Aid

The Sarah Lawrence Difference

At Sarah Lawrence, you take educational ownership from day one as you work with professors to design a unique academic program driven by your intellect and individual interests.

Classes are small (an average of 12 students), and the 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio drops to 1:1 every other week as you engage your professors in private tutorials.

Sarah Lawrence students enjoy a vibrant community on a beautiful campus that happens to be less than a half hour from the abundant resources of New York City.

If you're ready for this kind of unique college experience, you're ready to apply to Sarah Lawrence.

Net Price Calculator

Sarah Lawrence College has partnered with the College Board to offer a Net Price Calculator—a tool that will help you determine just how affordable SLC may be for your family. The calculator will present you a sample of the kind of award you may receive once you are admitted and have applied for financial aid. SLC's average financial aid package is more than $34,000, and more than 70% of students receive financial aid, so it's worth a few minutes to see what might be in store for you!
