All applicants are encouraged to apply. The University of Louisiana at Monroe may admit students not meeting all requirements. In such cases, the admission decision will be affected by the student's potential for degree completion and the need to diversify the university's student population. Some factors to be considered may include age, experience, region or country of origin, and other special talents.

If you are not admitted to ULM, please consider a Community College (see info at right).
