Application Essentials

Applying is simple, just choose your path below to get started! We recommend that you apply one year prior to your desired start date, and if you have any questions our Enrollment Team is here to assist. Our Quarters begin January, April, July, and October (terms and deadlines).

Life University has decided to continue waiving its SAT, ACT, and GRE test requirements for those students who anticipate matriculating for the 2022-2023 Academic Year. While the SAT combined score and sub-scores and the ACT Composite and sub-scores are used to determine course advisement and placement, they are not used as sole criteria for admissibility or inadmissibility. Further, if scores for SAT or ACT were not submitted, an ACCUPLACER test or other placement test is required prior to the start of the quarter.
