People are not one-dimensional and neither is the world. A liberal arts and sciences education cultivates critical and analytical skills and teaches students to write and speak about ideas and problems creatively. Students graduate ready to take on issues and challenges in any profession. At Sarah Lawrence, students take classes in at least three of the four major liberal arts areas of study, but—unlike most schools—Sarah Lawrence treats them all as interconnected, overlapping, and part of the same learning process.
Sarah Lawrence was one of the first colleges in the country to offer academic credit and serious undergraduate training in the arts as part of a liberal arts and sciences curriculum.
Today our arts programs offer conservatory-level studies for students who aspire to professional careers but want the foundation of a well-rounded liberal arts education. The College also offers superb instruction for students who don’t want to concentrate in the arts but want to incorporate creativity and expression into their studies.
Financial Aid for Undergraduate Students
Sarah Lawrence College is committed to enrolling students from all backgrounds and perspectives. Through a combination of grants (that do not need to be repaid), student employment, and student loans, the Office of Financial Aid works with information you provide to us about your family’s finances to create an aid package that makes an Sarah Lawrence education possible for admitted students.

Success After Sarah Lawrence
As profiles in this booklet show, our students succeed at the highest levels: as creative artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, scholars, lawyers, public servants, and more. Their success owes much to what they learned at Sarah Lawrence—and perhaps even more to how they learned it.
