Sarah Lawrence College

Entity Type
Founding Date

Sarah Lawrence is a coeducational liberal arts college nationally renowned for its rigorous academic and creative standards. It offers outstanding programs in the humanities, the natural sciences and mathematics, history and the social sciences, and the creative and performing arts. These are fostered by small seminar classes and individual student-faculty tutorials made possible by a very low student-to-faculty ratio of 10-to-1.

  • The school is known for its classes in creative writing, filmmaking, dance, and theater.
  • Over 75% of students receive some form of financial assistance. 
  • Scholarships at SLC are determined by a student’s financial need, motivation for learning, and potential for active participation in the community.
