All College events occurring in March or April will either be held virtually, postponed or canceled. This includes admissions events for prospective and incoming students—such as Open Houses, Transfer Services Days, Accepted Students Day, Admissions Information Sessions, and campus and residence hall tours. We will continue to keep you updated about the status of events scheduled to take place after April 30, as well as virtual visit options.
Open House programs give you the opportunity to tour the LIM College campus and residence hall; and meet with faculty, staff and current students. Attend breakout sessions on special topics to learn more about what the campus and LIM College has to offer. Because of space limitation, we suggest you reserve your spot several weeks in advance.
Information sessions provide you with an opportunity to receive more insights about LIM College and take a brief tour of our campus, including an optional residence hall tour. The Office of Admissions hosts information sessions on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year. Due to space limitations, RSVPs are encouraged several weeks in advance of the date you plan to visit.
LIM College offers exclusive programs for students transferring from other colleges and universities. Transfer Services Day gives students the opportunity to join an information session, sit down one-on-one with a counselor to discuss credit transferability, obtain financial aid information and receive and instant decision on admission. Students can also schedule an appointment on Transfer Tuesdays to discuss credit transferability and receive and instant decision on admission.
First Year Fridays
Looking for an opportunity to meet with an Admissions Counselor and possibly receive an instant admissions decision?
