Application Checklist Please keep for your records.
SUBMIT THE APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION Apply online at www.pointloma.edu/apply. This application also serves as your application for PLNU Financial Aid. REQUEST TWO RECOMMENDATIONS Your Spiritual Leader Recommendation and Academic Recommendation are both available through the application. Simply enter your recommenders’ email addresses in the Recommendation section, and the recommendation site will be emailed to them. If your recommenders would prefer to mail in a paper letter, there is no need to use any form. Simply have them send the letter to PLNU at 3900 Lomaland Drive, San Diego, CA, 92106, and be sure your full name is a part of the letter. PAY THE $55 APPLICATION FEE The application fee is paid online, also at www.pointloma.edu/apply. If you are unable to pay the fee online, you can also mail a check to PLNU at 3900 Lomaland Drive, San Diego, CA, 92106. Please be sure the applicant’s full name is on the check. REQUEST OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS A) High School Seniors – request an official copy of your transcripts be mailed or electronically submitted directly from your school. If you are taking college courses, please submit an official “in progress” transcript from the college. B) Transfers – submit your official transcripts from all colleges/universities previously attended. If you are currently in college, have an “in progress” official transcript sent at the time of your application. If you have completed fewer than 36 transferable semester units at the time of application, please also submit final high school official transcripts and SAT or ACT scores. SUBMIT YOUR SAT I AND/OR ACT SCORES (unless you are a transfer student [already graduated from high school] with 36 or more transferable semester units) If you have taken an exam without including PLNU’s school code, please submit a photocopy of your personal test report with your application. If you have not yet taken the SAT I or ACT, or are retaking a test, please use PLNU’s school code on each test so that your scores will automatically be sent to PLNU. Our SAT test score code is 4605 and our ACT test score code is 0370.

If the check mark next to each item is green, that item is complete! Please note that most items take at least two business days to process.
