2019-2020 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Additional Placement Procedures

All undergraduate students at Lesley University must meet competencies in writing and mathematics. A review of Accuplacer test scores, college coursework, Advanced Placement (AP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores will be used to determine students' placements in writing and mathematics courses. If a student feels the course assignment may not provide appropriate challenge, the student may choose to sit for a writing and/or mathematics exam, administered by Lesley, to determine placement.

We also recognize that students may have had experiences or developed life skills related to their future careers or college-level learning outside formal classroom settings. For this reason, accepted degree candidates may participate at the point of matriculation in the University's Prior Learning Assessment Process (PLA) in order to document and evaluate for academic credit past experiences that occurred between high school graduation and prior to enrolling at Lesley.
