Undergraduate Admission

Applying is Easy

Welcome to the first step of going further in your life! All first-year undergraduate students can choose to use our application or apply using the Common App. If you’re a transfer or part-time student, please use our LVC application.

We offer rolling admissions for most undergraduate programs at LVC, so you can apply when the time is right for you. If you’re interested in scholarships and faster enrollment, we recommend an April 1 deadline for fall admission, and a December 1 deadline to start in the spring semester.
