  • Our park-like campus is nestled among towering trees and trillium-lined creeks. Our students explore the inspiring beauty of our natural setting, on 137 wooded acres in Portland’s southwest hills.

  • Prospective Undergraduate Students

    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.

    Virtual Visit

    Until you can visit in person, our virtual visit will give you a sense of what it’s like here. No other college offers our combination of top-notch academics, supportive community, and amazing location. Get to know us through video, email, and Instagram Live.
