    • Transfer applicants have completed college level courses following high school completion
    • There is no unit minimum amount necessary to be eligible to apply
    • We recommend students complete at least 12 units per semester in transferable coursework to be eligible for admission. This is to ensure that transfer students are prepared for the academic transition to a full academic course load if admitted.
    • In transfer admission, we advise by major. This means that once a student has selected a specific program to apply to, our course recommendations are based on that specific major, as well as the LMU Core Curriculum. 

    Students interested in applying to the College of Business Administration:

    • Must complete Business Calculus or Calculus 1 in class with a B grade or higher to be considered for admission. This is a mandatory requirement. If you are unable to meet this requirement, you will be asked to change your major.
