When should I apply?
LHU is on rolling admissions, which means that we accept applications until our classes are full. However, it is highly recommended to apply prior to January 1st to ensure plenty of time to complete the application process.
What are the minimum academic requirements for admission?
A high school curriculum that includes college preparatory courses in English, social studies, math and science. Two years of foreign language are preferred but not required.

An acceptable college preparatory curriculum includes academic courses that are specifically geared toward preparing a student for college. Although Honors or Advanced Placement (AP) courses are not required for admission they do carry extra weight in the application review process.
