What’s better than an LIM Accepted Students Day event?

THREE Accepted Students Day events!!!

Don’t miss the first one on Fri. Feb. 26 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM.

Log on to meet your new classmates and talk to current students, alumni, and faculty. We’ll cover lots of stuff you’re probably wondering about, including:

  • What does studying the business side of fashion really mean? What career paths can it lead to?
  • What financial aid is available – and how do I get through that process?
  • What’s it like to live in Manhattan?

You’ll also find out how you can be part of our first-ever “Concept to Runway” Competition – where you create a look that could be featured in our annual Student Fashion Show.

RSVP NOW for FEB. 26

More details will follow, but here are the dates and key highlights:

Don't leave money on the table! Apply for financial aid. To start this process, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your eligibility. Just put the LIM College school code 007466 on your form and we'll automatically get a copy of your FAFSA.

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.

For more details on the types of financial aid that may be available to you and how to apply for it, visit our financial aid page.

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 LIM students are required to have health insurance. If you aren’t already covered by your own or your family’s plan, don’t worry, we provide a student health insurance plan (through Gallagher).

And to make sure that everyone is covered from Day One, we automatically apply a charge for student health insurance to your account.

  • If you don’t have your own coverage already, you’re all set. You can visit www.gallagherstudent.com/LIM for information on plan benefits, prescription drug coverage, finding a doctor and how to submit a claim.
  • If you will have your own insurance or be covered by your family’s plan, all you have to do is submit a waiver to the Office of Student Financial Services with proof of that coverage, and we’ll remove the student health insurance charge.
