Application Process

Sarah Lawrence College at Oxford welcomes applications from qualified American undergraduates. All participants must be juniors or seniors in good standing at their home institution. A minimum grade point average of a 3.5 (B+) is required of all applicants. Students must demonstrate consistent work at a high level with particular strength in writing. Enrollment is limited to 30 students. All program applications are read on both the Sarah Lawrence campus and in Oxford by people who get to know the candidates individually.

The Office of International Programs can provide further information, and we encourage interested students to contact us. Alumnae/i of Sarah Lawrence at Oxford will be happy to discuss any aspect of the program; names and contact information are available through the Office of International Programs.

Sarah Lawrence College admits students without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, disability, national or ethnic origin. The College assumes the responsibility to arrange and provide the necessary support within reason for any student with a documented disability while studying abroad on a Sarah Lawrence College administered program. Any services required by the student have to be available at the site where the student is studying abroad. As in all matters involving the health and well-being of the student, information provided by the student will be treated as confidential and shared only by the study abroad office staff and the appropriate health and well-being practitioners. The documented disability has to be made known in writing to the International Programs office well in advance of the student's arrival abroad. This is to ensure that should services be available, we have ample time to make arrangements that are needed.
