Thinking of coming to Lehigh?

Prospective Students

We recognize that selecting a college is a really tough decision! Which school is right for me? Which major will best prepare me for my career? Will the school be a good fit for me?

We created this resource to help you see if Lehigh University is the right school for you. Many of the more general questions can be answered by the Admissions Office, however, as an LGBTQIA+ student you may have additional questions about campus climate and the programs and services available to LGBTQIA+ students. The information below will hopefully answer some of your questions! If you have any further questions, please contact us at pridecenter@lehigh.edu or call our office at 610-758-4574.
