These are challenging times for many students and their families, but we're here to help make your education more affordable. If you'd like to discuss your current financial situation, please book a personal appointment with a Student Financial Services Counselor.

All students must be financially cleared to attend classes. "Financially cleared" means you have either paid your tuition or have plans on record with the Office of Student Financial Services that demonstrate you will have the funds in place to pay your tuition (that can be through a combination of grants, loans, scholarships, a payment plan, etc.).

All incoming students must be financially cleared by the Office of Student Financial Services by Wednesday, July 27, 2022— the Fall 2022 payment deadline.

If you enroll after the payment deadline, please be prepared to be financially cleared before you can register for classes.

Financial clearance requires that 100% of your first semester tuition and fees and 100% of your first semester housing charges, if applicable, be paid or covered with confirmed financial aid funds and/or third-party payments (i.e., 529 plan funds, GI Bill Veteran’s Benefits, etc.).

 

Options for payment to ensure financial clearance:

1. Financial Aid: Please review all financial aid awards in our NetPartner portal. If you are accepting your entire package as is, you do not need to do anything further. If you would like to decline the entire package or parts of your package, please log on to the NetPartner portal; in the award module, using the drop-down box, indicate the award(s) you are declining or decreasing. All accepted, approved, and confirmed financial aid funds for the Fall 2022 semester will be applied as anticipated credit toward your fall charges.

Please note, all required financial aid documents must be completed in order for the Office of Student Financial Services to apply anticipated aid to your account. Additionally, all credit-based loans must be fully credit-approved, and all required documents for disbursement must be submitted.

Complete a Direct Student Loan Master Promissory Note on the Federal Student Aid website (MPN and online Loan Entrance Counseling, which are both required for all students borrowing Direct Loans.

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

  • Submit SAT/ACT/AP scores or 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. 

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

Otherwise, based on your academic records, we may recommend the writing and the math placement tests.

You may also choose to opt out of placement exams if you feel you could benefit from the additional instructional opportunities in the corequisite courses you’d be required to complete.

It’s important to understand how your previous coursework has transferred to LIM College. Beginning in June, 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 [at] 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 to determine which items you’re missing and which terms are reflected. Please include proof of your associate degree if applicable.

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

First-Year Students: LIM College must receive your official final high school transcript after you have graduated. New York State Law requires that you submit proof of high school graduation in order to sit in our classes in the fall. If you cannot obtain your final high school transcript, you can submit your official diploma. We also need all official final transcripts for any college/university classes you have taken or are now taking.

Submit your final high school transcript. The transcript must be an official transcript from your graduating institution and must clearly indicate your graduation date.

 

Transfer Students: You must submit all your college/university transcripts to the Office of Admissions to receive transfer credit for the courses you’ve taken. Oh, and we can't accept photocopies – we need the real thing!

Submit your final college transcript(s) from all previous institutions. The transcript(s) must be official copies.

 

International Students: You must submit official secondary school equivalency. The document(s) must represent the equivalence of high school graduation in the United States. All documents not written in English must be accompanied by an official translation.

International Baccalaureate students must submit final grades along with course descriptions or syllabi to receive credit for completed courses.

Submit your official proof of secondary school equivalency. This must be an official transcript from your issuing institution and must clearly indicate your completion date. Transcripts must be submitted to the Office of Admissions (international students only).

 

 

Deadline to submit final official transcripts and/or proof of graduation: Wednesday, August 4, 2022.

First-Year Students: 

All first-year students will register for courses in a one-on-one, virtual meeting with an academic advisor. Although not required to register for classes, we encourage first year students to complete placement exams in order to help place students into the highest possible math and English courses. The placement exam is taken online through Canvas. Students may also choose to opt out of placement exams and/or use SAT/ACT/AP scores or transfer credit for math and English placement. Please speak with your admissions counselor for more details on placement exams. 

Transfer students will receive a transfer credit evaluation within three weeks of being accepted. This evaluation will include information regarding all transferable courses and will indicate which courses you will still need to take to earn your degree at LIM College. Based on your transfer coursework, you may want to consider taking placement exams for math and/or English.  

Although not required to register for classes, placement exams are used to help place students into the highest possible math and English courses. Please speak with your admissions counselor or transferservices [at] limcollege.edu if you wish to discuss your transfer credits or placement test options further.

Once we have received all official transcripts, from all colleges attended prior to LIM, transfer students are eligible to register for a one-on-one, virtual meeting with an academic advisor- in order to register for classes. 

You will need an F-1 student visa to study in the United States. This visa will allow you to study for the duration of your program and does require full-time study.

Before applying for your visa, you should either contact the U.S. Consulate/ Embassy or visit their website to determine the requirements for applying for the F-1 student visa in your home country.

APPLICATION

In order to obtain an F-1 student visa you will need a Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Students) from LIM College. All documents must be reviewed and accepted. Copies of all documents are acceptable for the issuance of the I-20.

Access the I-20 application

SEVIS FEE PAYMENT

The I-901 SEVIS fee is mandated by Congress to support the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), the automated system that keeps track of students and exchange visitors and ensures that they maintain their 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.

Visit the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website to learn more about I-901 SEVIS Fee.

IMPORTANT DATES
  • For Fall 2022 semester applicants outside of the United States, I-20 applications are due August 9, 2022.
