Choosing graduate study at Lesley.

You’re in! Welcome to the community. Take a moment to congratulate yourself for taking this important step toward your future. After you’ve finished celebrating, there are a few details to take care of to make your enrollment in a Lesley graduate program official.

How to Enroll

Step 1: Find your Lesley username—it’s at the bottom of your acceptance letter.

Step 2: Know your password—it’s the same one you use to track your financial aid documents in Self-Service. 

Step 3: Log in to Lesley's Electronic Form System using your Lesley username, minus "" Submit your online enrollment contract and deposit. Please complete this form on a computer versus a mobile device. Your deposit is due within 3 weeks of getting your acceptance letter. International students must submit an enrollment contract and deposit before requesting an I-20 from International Student Services.

Enrollment Deferral

If unexpected circumstances prevent you from starting your program, you must request a deferral of admission.

In your request, state the reason you’re unable to begin in the term to which you were originally admitted. The program director and director of graduate admissions will review your request.

We will notify you within 10 business days after you submit the deferral of admission form. If a deferral is approved before you’ve submitted an enrollment deposit, you’ll be expected to pay the non-refundable deposit fee to finalize the deferral. Deferrals are granted for no more than one year.

The deferral of a scholarship offer is made at the discretion of the department. Contact Graduate Admissions for more information.

Immunization Information

All students will be required to submit proof of immunizations from several diseases, including COVID-19, or to have approved medical or religious exemptions in order to participate in any on-campus experience.
