Your Online LMU Application

    You may use this application to apply for admission as a freshman, admission as a transfer or admission to the Pre-College or Visiting Student summer programs. Do not use this application if you are applying to any graduate programs.

    LMU is adopting a test-optional policy for students applying for admission for fall 2021.

    Students who choose not to submit SAT or ACT scores this year, or who are not able to do so due to limited test dates and capacity will not be at a disadvantage in our consideration of their applications. In LMU's review of applications, we have always considered SAT or ACT scores as only one of many factors as we seek to understand each applicant as a whole person and potential member of the LMU community. We will continue to consider SAT or ACT scores for students who choose to submit them and will accept self-reported scores for this purpose.

    LMU is still accepting fall 2020 applications for consideration based on available space. First-year and transfer students may apply through the LMU online application or the Common Application. For questions, please contact: We recognize that due to the current and changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, sending the official documents may prove to be challenging. For the time being, we will accept unofficial transcripts in order to expedite your admission decision. Please make sure your first and last name as well as the name of the institution are visible on your documents. You can send the unofficial transcripts or screenshot of your transcripts via email to or upload them as an Unofficial Transcript via your Applicant Status Portal.

    Please do not start a new application if:
    • you are a freshman or transfer applicant and have already submitted or started an application for the same entry term (e.g., Fall 2020);
    • you are a freshman or transfer applicant and have submitted a Common Application or Coalition Application for the same term;
    • you are a high school student or visiting undergraduate and have already submitted or started an application for the Summer 2020 Pre-College or Visiting Student summer programs.
