Admission to Lewis & Clark is selective. Students must be prepared to meet the rigorous academic challenges of the classroom. The College seeks students of excellence as measured by grades, challenging curricula, English proficiency, writing samples, and leadership roles.
While educational systems and transcript reports vary throughout the world, international students are generally expected to have above average academic records. Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or honors courses are viewed as strong evidence of serious preparation for Lewis & Clark. Non-native speakers of English must submit evidence of English language proficiency. Lewis & Clark recognizes the results from a number of standardized tests for this purpose.
