What Are My Next Steps?
1) Submit your transcript.
Make sure you contact your high school (or any college attended) and have them send
an official transcript to LMU's Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please note that
we cannot accept faxed transcripts, but do accept electronic transcripts directly
from institutions or official transcripts mailed to us:
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
6965 Cumberland Gap Pkwy.
DAR Hall 2nd Floor
Harrogate, TN 37752
2) Submit your ACT/SAT scores to LMU*
*To accommodate prospective students due to recent SAT and ACT test administration
cancellations and the ongoing Covid-19 situation, Lincoln Memorial University (LMU)
is considering students for admission from a test-optional perspective through Fall 2021 admission.
When Will I Hear Something?
At LMU, we have what's called rolling admissions, meaning our Admissions team reviews
completed application files as soon as they are received. In order to make sure your file is
complete, make sure the Admissions Office has your transcripts and test scores.
