Office of Admissions COVID-19 Update

The Office of Admissions has suspended all prospective and admitted student campus visits through May 1.

We are taking this extraordinary step in an effort to protect the health and safety of our community and visitors, as well as to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. University leadership and medical professionals in the Health and Wellness Center continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and are taking measures to support the health and well-being of our campus community. For ongoing updates and answers to frequently asked questions, please visit the university's COVID-19 information page.

We understand this decision presents challenges to students and families, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding. We hope to be able to welcome students to campus for visits during the summer and fall months. Until then, we encourage students to experience our campus and explore our community through the following avenues:

Current first-year applicants:

We are excited to welcome the Early Decision I and II members of the Class of 2024 to campus in the fall and information regarding orientation, housing assignments, etc. will be sent during the summer. Currently, Lehigh’s Committee on Admissions is reviewing Regular Decision applications; decisions will be released, as planned, in late March.

Current transfer applicants:

The deadline for submitting your transfer application is April 1. If you have difficulty submitting required materials by the published deadline, please contact our office at transfers@lehigh.edu. We will do our best to be flexible and work with you to help you complete your application. Transfer admission decisions will be released in May.

Prospective students for the Class of 2025 and beyond:

Our priority is the health and well-being of current and future members of the Lehigh family. We continue to follow the guidance of university leaders, who are making decisions based on the most current information. When we resume our campus visitation program, we will update our website and Events Calendar accordingly. We hope to be able to welcome prospective and admitted students to campus for visits during the summer and fall months.
