What Are LIM's Admission/Application Deadlines?

Because LIM College accepts admission applications on a rolling basis, the deadline is simply before the start of the next semester, or until openings are filled. This means you can apply any time up to the beginning of the fall or spring semester for on-campus programs, and up to the beginning of each module (six times a year) for online programs, until all openings are filled.

We also invite incoming first-time freshman interested in the fall semester to apply for Early Action admission. Early Action is designed for students who demonstrate a sincere interest in LIM College and the fashion industry. Early Action is a non-binding commitment.
