What happens after you apply?



After you complete your admissions file, you should receive the decision on your admission to LMU very soon. Once you have been accepted for admission, you will also begin to receive information about housing, financial aid, summer orientation, and other important information. You will need to remember these important steps:
  1. Complete your housing application and submit the housing deposit; or, if you will be commuting, submit the housing waiver form.
  2. Complete the financial aid process, which includes submitting the FAFSA form. If you want to be considered for academic scholarships, submit your admission application before March 1 of the fall term you are entering.
  3. Sign up for a summer orientation day to complete the registration process for fall and to learn more about Lincoln Memorial University!
