Ready to take the first step toward joining the Lancer Family? It's as simple as 1, 2, 3 . . . 

1. Create your student profile

Whether you apply through the Longwood application or the Common Application (opens on August 1), you’ll need to create your student profile. Be sure to keep your login information in a safe place so you can refer to it in the future.

2. Complete and submit your application

All Applicants except Nursing

  • SAT/ACT score (optional for fall 2021 admission only)*
  • Personal statement (optional)

Nursing Applicants

  • Nursing essay (required)
  • SAT/ACT test scores (strongly encouraged)
  • Test-Waiver Option and Conditional Admission

Applicants unable to submit test scores due to COVID-19, may apply for conditional admission with a test waiver. Students choosing this option must have taken (or be on track to complete) four years of upper-level mathematics while in high school. Students admitted with conditional status will be enrolled in BIOL 206 and MATH 171 during the first semester at Longwood and must earn a “C” grade or better to continue in the nursing program.  

3. Upload your documents

48 hours after successful submission of your application, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to upload an unofficial copy of your high school transcript. You’ll also receive a checklist of your next steps toward becoming a Lancer!


*Test scores -- SAT/ACT test scores are not required, but optional. If you choose not to submit standardized test scores, you will not be penalized and your application for admission will be holistically reviewed for consideration for admission, the Cormier Honors College, and merit-based aid. If you choose to submit standardized test scores, you will have the opportunity to elect “test-optional” and self-report your unofficial scores on your application. Confirmation of official scores will be required prior to enrolling.
