Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Lewis & Clark College is a private liberal arts college dedicated to preparing students for effective and meaningful participation in public and private life, and in local and global engagement. More than half of the students participate in overseas and off-campus study programs, community service, and internships. Its 115-acre campus was developed from a private estate, six miles from downtown Portland.
