To ensure the success of all LIM students, all students are required to show they are ready for college-level math and English courses in one of two ways:

  • Submit official SAT/ACT/AP/IB scores or submit official college transcripts with completed math/English coursework
  • Complete placement test(s)

To access the exams, log in to myLIM and choose the “Canvas” icon underneath Launchpad. Within the Canvas homepage, you will find a box/tile titled “Placement Exams”. Click on this to access the exams, study guides and additional placement exam information.

If you do not complete the above exams, and/or do not submit alternative placement documentation (as listed above) you will be required to take an additional course simultaneously with your math or English to help you meet the learning objectives. These courses are called co-requisites and are considered remedial. The deadline to complete placement exams is Friday, August 30.

If you plan to submit SAT/ACT/AP/IB scores, or prior college coursework, please contact admissions@limcollege.edu.  

If you have a registered IEP or other supporting documentation for academic accommodations, please contact accessibility@limcollege.edu.

It’s important to understand how your previous coursework has transferred to LIM College. Beginning in May, and on a rolling basis thereafter, please log in to Sonis to review your Final Credit Evaluation for more details on how each of your courses has been evaluated. Sonis is our official student information system, so make sure Sonis reflects the credits shown on your Transfer Credit Evaluation Sheet. If you have any questions regarding your Final Credit Evaluation, please contact transferservices@limcollege.edu for further assistance. 

Transfer credits are awarded based on official transcripts. Once you complete your last semester, please be sure to have your final official transcript(s) sent to the Office of Admissions.  

Check your evaluation for notes regarding missing items and/or important advising memos. It is also important to verify that all colleges attended, and all semesters in which you completed coursework are reflected on your evaluation.

Students may appeal a transfer credit decision by emailing course syllabi to: transferservices@limcollege.edu

Copies of all documents are acceptable for the issuance of the I-20.

Click here to access the I-20 application. 

SEVIS FEE PAYMENT 

The I-901 fee, often called the “SEVIS fee”, is mandated by Congress to support the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP and the Student Exchange and Visitor Information System (SEVIS). These are the U.S. governing bodies and systems that keep track of students and exchange visitors and record student status while in the United States.

Each student or exchange visitor issued an initial Form I-20 or DS-2019 on or after September 1, 2004, is responsible for paying the $350 fee to SEVP. The fee can either be paid by mail with a check, via the internet using a credit card, or through Western Union. 

Confirmation of the SEVIS Fee payment is required for the visa interview at a local U.S. Consulate/Embassy. This confirmation must be filed with your visa application.
