What are the application deadlines for LIU Brooklyn?

LIU Brooklyn has rolling admissions for most programs. However, certain programs have their own deadlines for application. For more information, visit Important Application and Program Deadlines.

What is the minimum high school average I need to be admitted?

Most programs at LIU Brooklyn require a high school average of at least 75 for admittance, with a few requiring an average of 80 or above. The Pharmacy program requires a high school average of at least 85.

While the grade point average is a basic tool for admission, it is not the sole determining factor in the final decision for admission. The admissions committee will take into consideration the rigor of academic curriculum, course selection relevant to the intended program of study and, in some cases, positive progression in academic performance.

What is the minimum SAT score needed to be admitted?

The median SAT or ACT scores are equivalent to 1000-1050 (critical reading and math only). Some majors may have a “minimum” SAT or ACT score requirement (the School of Health Professions, in most cases, requires a combined minimum score of 1000 or higher), however, standardized test scores are part of a holistic evaluation process.
