Application process

Thank you for your interest in LAU. You will find below the steps to apply to the program of your choice.

I want to apply ONLINE

  • You can save a partially completed application and return to it as many times as necessary. You should submit your application; however, only after it is completed in full. At that point, you will need to enter a valid credit card number to pay the $65 application fee. Once the payment is processed, you will receive an email confirming the transaction.
  • Submit your supporting documents by mail or in person to the Admissions Office on the campus to which you’re applying.

I want to apply using a paper application

If you prefer to use a paper application, you can download the below application or request a copy  from the Admissions Office and fill it out by hand. Then, submit your application and supporting documents to the Admissions Office on the campus to which you’re applying, by mail or in person.
