Lesley University warmly welcomes international students. Please review the information below to learn more about the undergraduate application process.
International applicants applying for the January term (spring) must apply by our preferred deadline of November 1. International applicants applying for the September term (fall) must apply by the same deadlines as U.S. first year or transfer students.
In addition to the credentials required for first year and transfer applicants, an international student must also submit:
An I-20 form (necessary for obtaining a U.S. student visa), will be
provided only after the student has been accepted and has submitted both
the certification of finances and the required enrollment deposit
signifying intent to enroll.
Lesley University offers several guaranteed undergraduate merit scholarships and awards. You will be considered for up to one scholarship/award when we review your application, and we will notify you of your award with your admission decision. Applicants who meet the criteria are guaranteed a merit scholarship. Merit scholarships are awarded annually, for each year of study, provided that students are enrolled full-time (taking a minimum of 12 credits each semester) and maintain satisfactory academic progress toward their degree. Please note that need-based financial aid is not available for international students.
