Contact an Admissions Counselor

We know you are comparing lots of different colleges. We’re here to make that process as easy as possible. Our admissions counselors are a great resource throughout your entire college search process. 

Contact us with any questions you may have about Lesley—our programs, the culture, or what makes us stand out. Talk to us about what you’re looking for, and we can help you decide if Lesley’s a good fit. Call, email, text, or set up a one-on-one meeting with us in Cambridge. Have questions about your application to Lesley? We can help with that, too. Ask us about deadlines or requirements, and get advice on how to make your application stand out.

Travel Schedule

Throughout the year, Admissions Counselors will be conducting virtual visits to offer opportunities for students to meet with them one-on-one or in small groups, as well. See our counselors' schedule here
