Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


To apply to Lawrence, you can use either the Common Application or the Lawrence Application. Both applications are the same, so use whichever you prefer. Lawrence does not charge an application fee. In addition to the Common or Lawrence application, you will be asked to provide School Transcripts and Teacher Recommendations. Submitting Test Scores and completing an interview are optional. Conservatory students must also provide a Music teacher evaluation and resume, as well as completing an Audition.


Lawrence welcomes transfer applications from students who have graduated from high school or have a GED/HSED and are attending or have attended other colleges or universities. As an institution that prizes individuality and values diversity, Lawrence knows that transfer students often bring with them new or different perspectives that enrich not only their own education experiences, but those of other students.

Additionally, there are several larger visit day programs throughout the year, such as Summer Visit Days and Fall Open Houses.
