Admission is competitive. Decisions are based on: college preparatory academic units completed; GPA in those courses; competitiveness of program; and SAT or ACT scores. Activities and community involvement are also considered, but primary emphasis is placed on the academic record. Class rank is helpful information but it is not required.
A completed application consists of: the application, personal statements, $50.00 application fee; high school and/or college transcript; and SAT or ACT scores.

Longwood takes a great deal of pride in its beautiful 60-acre residential campus, where 70 percent of undergraduates live in university-sponsored housing.
Many buildings on campus are done in a red-brick colonial revival style; others, such as the new Health & Fitness Center, have a more contemporary design.

Questions Regarding an Admission Decision
