Admissions

  • Statement from Lewis & Clark Admissions Regarding COVID-19

    Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Office of Admissions has limited the number of on-campus visitors during the 2020-21 academic year. Visits are currently available exclusively for current first-year/transfer applicants by pre-registration only. Walk-in visitors will not be accommodated. To learn more about our current precautions, please see our COVID-19 Ongoing Response website

    Plan Your Visit

    We are happy to report that we plan a return to normal for Fall 2021. We expect to deliver a Lewis & Clark undergraduate education as we did pre-COVID, with all courses taking place in person on campus. For more information, please see this statement from Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Bruce Suttmeier, as well as our Frequently Asked Questions for the Fall semester.

  • Afford

    The cost of a college education can seem overwhelming, but a private liberal arts education at Lewis & Clark is often more affordable than you think. In fact, 96% of Lewis & Clark students receive some form of financial assistance! Learn more for yourself about our Scholarships and Grants and the Financial Aid application process.

  • My favorite thing about living in Portland is the friendliness and acceptance of the community. Every time I go downtown, I’m reminded of how nice and welcoming people can be, from the smiles and hellos on TriMet to food cart owners remembering my face and asking me about life.
