Official Test Scores

LIM College requires an official score report of SAT or ACT tests to be considered for admission. For Fall 2017 applicants, LIM College will accept both the new SAT and the old SAT test. For admission, we will consider the single highest score from your test dates. If you took both assessments, we will use concordance tables provided by the College Board to compare scores. The average test score for the Math and Critical Reading sections of the old SAT test is 937 and a composite ACT score of 20 for Fall 2014 admitted students.

Our school code is:
  • SAT Code: 2380
  • ACT Code: 4807

The standardized test requirement is waived for students who have satisfactorily completed at least 15 credit hours (21 credits on a quarter or trimester system) at an accredited college or are 21 years of age or older.

International students may be required to complete the TOEFL or another exam to prove English proficiency.
