Course Scheduling

Incoming LIM College students are placed in their Math and English courses based on their SAT or ACT scores and/or previous course work. Transfer students are evaluated in their final credit review which is completed after they’re enrolled and final transcripts are sent to the Office of Admissions. All enrolled students are sent their registration manual and course suggestions to their LIM College email accounts once registration requirements are met (refer to your enrollment packet for further details).

 
International Students

All international students whose first language is not English, regardless of transfer credit and/or standardized test scores, are required to take a mandatory English placement test prior to the start of the Fall or Spring semester. This test verifies English proficiency, competency and written ability. Test results determine placement into or out of a developmental level, zero-credit, English skills and communications course. Any international student required to take this course must do so in their first semester at LIM College.

Math placement is based on applicable transfer credit and/or standardized test scores. International students without these credentials are required to take a mathematics placement test. Any international student who places into remedial mathematics must adhere to the Remedial Course Policy as stated in the LIM College catalog.

For your convenience, LIM College schedules testing and scheduling for international students the day after you move into the residence hall. You cannot take your placement tests online or at another school. Details are sent to you a few months before the semester starts.

PURCHASE BOOKS

Once you have completed your schedule, you can purchase or rent textbooks online or in the bookstore. You can also get course materials, clothing, apparel, t-shirts, and supplies at the bookstore.
