Our Early Decision program begins each year on November 1 and ends on February 1. Students who decide after November 1st that St. Lawrence is their first choice, can commit to Early Decision at any time up until February 1. Admissions staff review Early Decision applications on a continual basis, and we notify Early Decision applicants as their applications become complete.
Early Decision applicants who wish to be considered for financial assistance are required to complete the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile form. This form is available beginning each September.
Completing and sending a CSS Profile to one college costs $25 and for each additional report sent the cost is $16 per school report. The CSS Profile automatically provides a waiver for the profile for students from low income families with limited assets. St. Lawrence has a program to grant fee waivers for CSS Profiles that are required as part of our Early Decision program. Profile data is sent electronically to colleges so sending a printout of the application is not necessary. The CSS Profile code for St. Lawrence University is 2805.
Notification of financial assistance for Early Decision applicants will be at the same time as notification of the admissions decision as long as we have completed Financial Aid documents.
