Application Process

The Sarah Lawrence College in Florence program is highly selective, and the number of students is limited. The program is open to juniors and seniors enrolled at any accredited American college or university.

The Office of International Programs can provide further information about the program, and interested students are encouraged to call or visit us. "Veterans" of the Sarah Lawrence Florence Program will be happy to discuss any aspect of the program; names and numbers are available through the Office of International Programs.

As students live with an Italian family, a degree of maturity and personal stability is essential.

Send inquiries and applications to:
