For Parents & Families

Welcome to the Sarah Lawrence College parent and family community!

SLC parents and families are equally as creative and dynamic as their students, and we encourage you to bring that ingenuity to Sarah Lawrence! Families support the College and student body by attending virtual and in person events, by acting as ambassadors at Sarah Lawrence events and in your home community, by offering internships and career counseling support, and through fundraising activities. The Parents Council is a great way to become more engaged in the Sarah Lawrence experience while providing an important service to your student and our community. 


Spring Semester 2022

The calendar for the spring 2022 semester is available online, with classes scheduled to begin on January 26 after online donning, interviews, and registration. Regular move-in for the spring semester will take place on January 23 and January 24.

As was the case in the fall semester, policies are in place to ensure the safest experience for all on campus this semester:

  • All residential and commuter students—both undergraduate and graduate—are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, including boosters, barring an approved medical or religious exemption
  • All employees of the College must provide documentation of full vaccination, including boosters, barring an approved medical or religious exemption
  • All visitors to campus, including family members, guest speakers, and vendors, must be fully vaccinated OR provide proof of a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours of arrival on campus
    • Both PCR and rapid tests are acceptable, provided they were conducted at an official testing site or lab (at-home test results are not acceptable)
    • Test results must show the visitor's name and date of test
  • All individuals on campus must wear a mask at all times while indoors in shared spaces; unvaccinated individuals must also wear a mask outdoors when gathering with others
Please refer to our semester information site—particularly the FAQs for students and families—for the latest updates as we move toward and through the fall semester.
