Becoming A Lander Student

Freshman Students Applying to Lander is quick and simple. Just complete an online application at Lander University admissions counselors will evaluate your application on the basis of your high school record and scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). Your application will be reviewed as soon as your admissions file is complete. You will be notified of a decision within two to three weeks.

Transfer Students

How do I apply? n Submit an admission application with

the application fee. n Have your SAT or ACT results sent to the

Lander Office of Admissions. n Have your counselor mail an official

copy of your high school transcript to the Office of Admissions. n Have each college or university you

have attended send an official copy of your transcript to the Lander University Office of Admissions.

Whether you are in the early or late stages of your education, we have designed the transfer process to fit the needs of those who have attended another university. Transfer students are considered for admission to Lander from an accredited junior or four-year college if they have a 2.0 (C) or better grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for all courses attempted at the last school attended. A student must also be academically eligible to return to all previous institutions. We evaluate each transcript and give credit from accredited institutions for courses in which a grade of C or better has been earned, provided the courses are equivalent to courses offered at Lander. Refer to the current Lander catalog, found online at, for detailed information.

Returning Students If your attendance at Lander is interrupted for one semester or more, you must submit a new application to the Office of Admissions. Exceptions are made only for those who applied for and were granted an official Leave of Absence.

Applicants who wish to attend Lander for one semester or on a limited basis and who do NOT intend to pursue a degree at Lander should submit an application for admission. No application fee is required for students applying for special/nondegree admission. The Office of Admissions reserves the right to identify the proper category for admission and to determine what credentials may be required.

What if I have a question about the application? Although an interview is not required, making an appointment with an admissions counselor to discuss the application process before you apply is a great way to get all the answers to your questions about Lander and the application. Admissions counselors are available to discuss admissions procedures, to share Lander’s opportunities with you and to take you on a tour of the campus.

You can speak with professors from each academic division and with representatives from housing, financial aid, academic support, athletics, student life, student organizations, admissions and other support areas. The Office of Admissions can provide you with more information.

CAMPUS VISITS – Weekday campus visits are tailored to meet your needs. A standard visit includes a tour of the campus and an opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor. During a visit, students are also able to attend a class, meet with representatives across campus and eat lunch in the dining hall upon request.
