Application Deadlines

International applicants should apply by the deadlines listed below.  However, we recognize that academic calendars vary from country to country, so the International Student Admission committee will accept applications at other times on a case-by-case basis.  Although most international students enter Lewis & Clark at the beginning of the fall semester (late August), students may apply to enter in the spring semester (mid-January).

Importantly, international students who are applying for financial aid or who are attending international/American schools abroad should follow the application deadlines below:

For fall semester admission in late August:

  • Early Action (nonbinding): Apply by November 1
  • Regular Decision: Apply by January 15

For spring semester admission in mid-January:

  • November 1
