Procedures & Deadlines

Your application for admission to Longwood University will be evaluated after the Admissions Office has received all the necessary documents. You are required to submit the following:

  1. The Application for Admission.
  2. A non-refundable application fee of $50. Please make your check or money order payable to Longwood (credit card payment is accepted if applying online). Include on the check the name and social security number of the applicant.
  3. Your high school transcript. *Required only for students transferring in without an Associates degree in Arts and/or Science or higher.
  4. An official transcript from each college or university attended. Once you have submitted your initial transcripts (high school and/or college), you are required to update your admission file with grades from newly completed quarters or semesters.
  5. Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) scores if you have earned fewer than 24 transferable hours or if you are under 23 years of age. Scores may be sent directly to Longwood by the testing service. All references to SAT scores are based on the Critical Reading and Math scores only. Writing scores are not used in the evaluation process. Please use the Longwood institutional codes: 5368 for SAT, 4366 for ACT.  SAT and ACT scores that appear on official high school transcripts (sent directly to Longwood) will be accepted. If you are over 23 years of age or have complete 24 transferable hours of credit at an accredited college/university, you may be exempt from submitting SAT or ACT scores.
  6. AP, IB or CLEP scores mailed directly from the testing agency to the Registration Office.

Upon acceptance, you will receive a credit evaluation within two weeks from the Registrar's Office.


We use a rolling admissions plan, so there's no definitive deadline. However, you are urged to apply by these dates.

  • Fall Semester: March 1
