Course Scheduling

First Time Freshman

Course registration is a final step to becoming an LIM student!  Students register for courses on campus during New Student Orientation.  New Student Orientation is mandatory and will be held once in June, twice in July and once in late August, right before the start of the semester.   All first time freshmen must will receive a placement based on scores on file or a recommendation to complete the online placement exam. The placement exam is taken online and must be completed by the deadlines outlined in the New Student Orientation information.   Campus registration is led by an LIM Academic Advisor and students receive support and assistance with their course selection and degree planning.  Should not be able to attend one of the mandatory orientation dates, please direct all questions to your admissions counselor.

Transfer Students

Course registration is a final step to becoming an LIM student!  Students register for courses on campus during New Student Orientation.  As an admitted transfer student you will receive a transcript analysis within three weeks of acceptance.  This analysis outlines courses which are transferring into LIM College and courses which still need to be fulfilled to obtain your degree.  Transfer students may need to complete the online placement exam and should review their individual analysis for registration direction.  The placement exam is taken online and must be completed by the deadlines outlined in the New Student Orientation information.  If you are unsure about your registration status or have questions, please contact the LIM College Transfer team at transferservices@limcollege.edu.

International Students

You’ve made the decision to study in New York City, what a fantastic choice!  We hope you will find our country, college and New York city community hospitable.

International Student Orientation and registration occurs on August 16-18.  If you are a freshman you must take the online placement test.  Transfer Students who have successfully demonstrated completion of an English Composition course at a United States college may have that credit evaluated and will qualify out of the writing placement test. Similarly, 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 place into remedial mathematics must adhere to the Remedial Course Policy as stated in the LIM College catalog.

Your next step is to sign up for a departure webinar.  This webinar is designed to provide you with I20 and Visa information, Important dates, instructions on how to access the placement test and other additional steps.  International students may move into our Residence Hall August 14 between 12:00- 3:00PM Eastern Standard time or 7:00-11:00PM Eastern Standard time. Further information will be provided to you in the New Student Guide which is sent via email at the end of May.
