New Student Registration


What Is New Student Registration?

New Student Registration (NSR) is the day you officially become a student at LMU! You are greeted in the morning with smiling staff to usher you through your registration process. This is the official beginning to your first year at LMU. You are guided through your day by a Lincoln Ambassador who will help you and your family members make your way through the various registration stations.


Students will need to register for one of the schedule New Student Registration Dates. Please visit the Admissions events page to register here. The registration link is located under the New Student Registration section.
