College Admission

Academic Requirement

Minimum requirement for entrance into the college department is either a high-school diploma or a GED certificate.

Equal Opportunity

All applicants for admission to Immanuel Lutheran College are considered on an individual basis. The school does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, age, national origin, or handicap.


Students who wish to apply for admission into the college department are asked to follow these procedures:

1. Submit the registration form along with the $25.00 fee. Enrollments are accepted up to the start of a semester, but course availability is enhanced if application is made by July 1 for the first semester and November 1 for the second semester.

2. Request that transcripts be sent to Immanuel Lutheran College for high-school work and for credits completed at other colleges.

3. If you have not been enrolled in Immanuel Lutheran High School, complete a physical history form and submit it upon enrollment.

4. If possible, take the ACT battery of tests prior to enrolling at Immanuel Lutheran College and have the results sent to the admissions office prior to registration day. If you have already taken the SAT battery, this will be accepted in place of the ACT. Students who have not taken either testing program prior to enrollment may be required to take the ACT during their first year at Immanuel.

5. There are special admission policies for non-CLC students.


Transfer Credits

Immanuel Lutheran College will accept credits from other colleges and universities, provided that the courses to be transferred carry a grade of C- or higher, and that they are applicable to degree programs at ILC.

Whereas every attempt will be made to accommodate transfer students, we cannot guarantee that all the needed courses will be available for all students. The academic dean in consultation with the registrar will handle each case separately.

In order to receive an A.A. degree at ILC, students must take the final semester of course work in residence. In order to receive a B.S. or B.A. degree, students must take the final 30 credits in residence.
