Statement from Lewis & Clark Admissions Regarding COVID-19
In response to national concerns about COVID-19, we have made the following decisions, which we feel are in the best interest of the health and well-being of our campus visitors as well as the Lewis & Clark College community:
- The deadline for first-year students to respond to a Lewis & Clark College offer of admission has been extended from May 1 to June 1. The reply deadline for transfer students is also June 1.
- On March 23, Oregon Governor, Kate Brown JD ’85, issued Executive Order 20-12, prohibiting colleges from most in-person instruction and on-campus operations. Therefore, to do our part to “flatten the curve,” the Office of Admissions and the Financial Aid Office are closed for on-campus visits indefinitely.
- Both offices will remain open, and our staff are available to answer your questions by phone and email.
- All April on-campus admitted student programs and off-campus admitted student receptions are postponed. More information about these events will be forthcoming.
In the meantime, weekly LIVE tours and information sessions are available on our Instagram account, @lewisandclarkcollege. You can also choose from a wide array of other virtual visit options at go.lclark.edu/virtualvisit.
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, 93% 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.
