Graduate School Admissions


Lewis & Clark faculty and the graduate admissions committee practice a holistic approach to admissions. Many factors are carefully considered when evaluating candidates including prior academic record, interpersonal skills, and cross-cultural readiness. An individual’s personal integrity and professional fitness are also relevant to the admissions process.

Admission Expectation

Applicants must hold, or be in the process of completing, a baccalaureate degree (for some programs a master’s degree is also required.) The degree must be earned from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States (the college or university must be regionally accredited at the time of enrollment and when the degree was conferred) or the foreign equivalent.

In addition, each program has specific application requirements that may include prior experience, specific courses, test scores, or a portfolio. Please carefully check your program’s application requirements. Only completed applications will be reviewed for admission and scholarship consideration.
