Lakeland University Admission Overview

We would love to have you join our community. Applying for admission as a transfer student is relatively easy–there's detailed information within the Admissions section of this site. If you attended Lakeland University before, you may have a shorter path to readmission. Check out readmission details for former Lakeland students.

We admit transfer students in both fall and spring semesters. Most students will need to complete an application and supply transcripts for all prior college-level work.

IMPORTANT: You may request your ACP transcript directly from the American Council on Education (ACE).
