LeMoyne-Owen College Admissions Overview:

LeMoyne-Owen's 2015 acceptance rate, while encouraging to applicants, should be taken in context. In 2014, the school had an acceptance rate of 52%. So, students interested in applying to the school should still submit their best application and test scores, and not assume that they automatically will be admitted. To apply, prospective students will need to send in an application, test scores (both the SAT and ACT are accepted, while most applicants submit ACT scores), and official high school transcripts.
