6. GET HEALTH INSURANCE

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 Koster).

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.gallagherkoster.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 that student health insurance charge.

10. SCHEDULE YOUR COURSES

NEW FRESHMEN

You can register for courses on campus during New Student Orientation.

All first time freshmen must will receive a placement based on scores on file or a recommendation to complete the online placement exam. The placement exam is taken online and must be completed by the deadlines outlined in the New Student Orientation information.

When you register during Orientation, you’ll be assisted by an Academic Advisor, who will help you select courses and plan your degree program. 

If you cannot attend Orientation on one of the scheduled dates, please contact your Admissions Counselor.

TRANSFER STUDENTS

If you are admitted as a transfer student, you will receive a transcript analysis within three weeks of being accepted. It will tell you which courses you’ve already taken will transfer into LIM College and which courses you still need to take to earn your degree. You may also need to take our online English/Math placement exam by the deadlines outlined in the New Student Orientation information. Your transcript analysis will include instructions on how to register. If you have questions about registration, please contact the LIM College Transfer team at transferservices@limcollege.edu.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

International Student Orientation and registration occurs before the start of the semester. If you will be a freshman, you must take the online placement test. Transfer Students who have successfully demonstrated completion of an English Composition course at a United States college may have that credit evaluated and will qualify out of the writing placement test. Similarly, Math placement is based on applicable transfer credit and/or standardized test scores. International students without these credentials are required to take a mathematics placement test. Any international student who place into remedial mathematics must adhere to the Remedial Course Policy as stated in the LIM College catalog.

Your next step is to attend a departure webinar.  This webinar is designed to provide you with I20 and Visa information, Important dates, instructions on how to access the placement test and other additional steps.  More information will be provided to you in the New Student Guide which is sent via email at the end of May.
