Transfer Student Admission

Regular Transfer Admission

LMU meets the needs of community college students in the Appalachian Region by providing transference of credit. Overseen by the Director of Community College Relations and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, LMU’s transfer policies are proactive in assuring that students have all the information necessary to make informed transfer decisions.

Regular Transfer Admission status is granted if a student has a cumulative GPA of 2.4 or higher on all previous college level work. Students with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.4 on previously attempted college-level work earned within the past five years must be reviewed by the Undergraduate Admissions Committee. The Undergraduate Admissions Committee may require students to participate in the University’s academic support and tutoring programs, request more information, or deny admission to the University.

Transfer admission students who have completed fifteen (15) or more semester credit hours of potentially transferable college-level course work at an accredited/approved college or university will be considered for regular transfer admission.
Students having completed fewer than fifteen (15) semester credit hours are subject to the Regular Admission criteria and procedures applicable to freshman admissions. Transfer student applicants must submit the following:

  1. The online Application for Admission
  2. Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended
  3. If fewer than fifteen (15) semester credit hours of college level course work have been completed, an official high school transcript must be submitted, along with official ACT/SAT test scores.
