Admission to LMU is competitive, and the applicant review process is guided by the same philosophy as our education: we consider the whole person. Along with strong academic performance, thoughtful essay responses, and positive recommendations, LMU also takes the time to learn more about you, your achievements, and community contribution. Our thorough evaluation results in a competitive selection of qualified students who are ready to become leaders, entrepreneurs, and unique individuals with and for others.
For Graduate admission and alternative academic options, follow up will vary based upon each program.
Once you apply for undergraduate admission, you will receive instructions for logging into the LMU Application Portal where you can monitor the status of your admission application. You will also be notified when your application is complete. Please be aware that submitting documents through the Common Application is a two-step process. First, your school submits your forms to the Common Application. Then, we import them in to the LMU system for review.. During peak volume periods, the process can take up to a week.
The application status for Graduate programs and alternative academic options will vary based upon each program.
