Admissions Checklist

Questions about the Admissions Checklist? Visit LUCOM during the spring Open House.

The purpose of the Admissions Checklist is to provide the framework of an initial
application submitted through the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS) up to Orientation Week.

Upon review of a submitted AACOMAS Application, a prospective student will receive a Liberty University username and identification number to log in via myLU. This identification is to be used to complete the LUCOM Supplemental Application (3rd step). Once completed, a prospective student should proceed through the Admissions Checklist.
