First Time College Students

The following materials are required for admission:

Application for admission (Online application preferred – www.loc.edu)

 $25 non-refundable application fee or fee waiver

 Official final high school transcript or equivalent provided by previous school attended (with

graduation date)

 SAT or ACT test score (If under age 21)

 All students must submit proof of immunizations. Documentation of 2 MMR immunizations or proof of immunity for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella and documentation of 2 Varicella immunizations or proof of immunity for Varicella (Chicken Pox) are required.

First time applicants who have not earned the required 2.0 cumulative grade point average may apply for limited academic admission. The Admission Review Committee reviews the files of these applicants. Students granted Limited Academic Admission follow an Educational Partnership Agreement (EPA), for the first semester of study. The EPA outlines mandatory counseling sessions, academic development sessions and the required grade point average the student must earn in the first semester.

Transfer Applicants

Transfer applicants may transfer appropriate courses from regionally accredited institutions to LeMoyne-Owen College if the grade received was "C" or better. However, to receive transfer credit, official transcripts from the previous institution(s) must be received before a student begins classes. Credits that are more than ten years old will be reviewed to determine if they are transferable. Students will not be awarded credit for coursework not at the college level or that is not appropriate to the curriculum at the College. All transfer evaluations are subject to final approval by the Office of the Registrar.

Transfer applicants must submit the following:

 Application for admission

 $25 non-refundable application fee

 Official college transcripts from any current/previous institution of higher education attended

 Must have a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) 

Applicants lacking the required 2.0 cumulative GPA may still apply for admission. These applicants must submit a written statement concerning their unsatisfactory academic record along with their completed application.

If the applicant has attempted fewer than 28 college credit hours, then they must submit:

 High school transcript or equivalent (if fewer than 28 college credit hours attempted)

 SAT or ACT test score (If under age 21)
