You can change your major at any time before or after enrolling. Before enrolling, you should contact the Office of Admissions to change your major. If you have already enrolled, you should work with a Success Coach to submit a change of major form.

You can identify on the Common Application or the LIU application how you would like to apply to Long Island University. If you apply early action, you will find out if you have been accepted earlier than many students but can still apply and consider other schools. If you select early decision, you will also find out if you have been accepted earlier than many students but are committed to attending LIU.

We review our waiting list periodically throughout the year. We will keep you updated throughout the admissions process on your application status.

If you wish to defer your admissions decision, please contact your Admissions Recruiter to complete the process. Your acceptance may be deferred; however, your scholarship offer will be adjusted based on the semester you enroll.
