Transfer Students

Arial view of LMU

Welcome to the College of Communication and Fine Arts at LMU! We are excited that you have decided to complete your undergraduate education here and look forward to working closely with you as you chart a course to accomplish your academic goals and have a rewarding undergraduate experience.

New Transfer Advising Appointment

In advance of your registration date, you will be asked to make an appointment (in person, if possible) to review your transfer credits, discuss your graduation plan, register for your first semester courses, and answer any questions you might have related to your academic experience within CFA. We will review your transcripts and scores together, to draft a graduation plan that maps out your path to completion of your chosen major at LMU.

Registration dates are set by the Transfer Admissions Office; class registration will be completed within the context of this personal advisement session with a CFA advisor.

Questions or Concerns?

If you have any questions or concerns prior to that appointment, please contact your Transfer Admissions Counselor in the Admissions Office, or Rachel Van Houten, Senior Coordinator of Academic Services, at rachel.vanhouten@lmu.edu or 310.338.5272.
