UNDERGRAD REQUIREMENTS (AAS/BBA)

Essay

In 250-500 words why you’re interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree. Please include:

  1. What makes you a good candidate for admission.
  2. What you hope to gain/learn by completing the program.

 

Application

To be considered for admissions, you must submit an online application along with a $40 non-refundable application fee or approved fee waiver. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

 

Letter of Recommendation

Applicants are required to submit one letter of recommendation from academic or work-related references. The letter of recommendation should demonstrate insight into your teamwork, leadership, communication, intellectual and interpersonal skills and abilities; as well as your level of maturity, strengths and weaknesses. The letter of recommendation can be submitted online with your application or via email (limonline@limcollege.edu).

 

Official Test Scores (Optional)

LIM College does not require an official score report of SAT or ACT tests to be considered for admission. But if you decide to submit, LIM College will accept both the new SAT and the old SAT test. We would consider the single highest score from your test dates. If you took both assessments, we will use concordance tables provided by the College Board to compare scores. The average test score for the Math and Critical Reading sections of the old SAT test is 937 and a composite ACT score of 20 for Fall 2014 admitted students.

Our school code is:
  • SAT Code: 2380
  • ACT Code: 4807

The standardized test requirement is waived for students who have satisfactorily completed at least 15 credit hours (21 credits on a quarter or trimester system) at an accredited college or are 21 years of age or older.

International students may be required to complete the TOEFL or another exam to prove English proficiency.
