As part of the application process, you must create a Be a Warrior account. You can use this account to upload admission documents, track your admission documents, register for events, and receive information about LC State.

If you need help creating your Be a Warrior account check out our tutorials.

Ask your high school to send your official transcript to the LC State Admissions Office at [email protected] or 500 8th Avenue Lewiston, ID 83501.

A 6th semester transcript can be submitted to be tentatively admitted, a 7th semester transcript is required for scholarship purposes.

If you enrolled in any college courses while in high school, those transcripts must be submitted as well.

Official transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope or in official electronic format from the issuing institution to be valid. Photocopies of records are not official.

*You can be tentatively admitted off unofficial or working transcripts. Unofficial transcripts may be sent to [email protected]. Unofficial college transcripts must include your full name, institution, grade points, credits, and grade point average. Working transcripts indicate you are currently enrolled in classes. After your grades and/or degree are posted, you will need to have official transcripts sent to the Admissions Office. Full admission will be granted once we receive all official college transcripts.

In order to be eligible for financial aid, please submit your Social Security Number on your Be a Warrior account. 

Academic students are not required to submit test scores for admissions purposes. However, you will need to submit either an ACT or SAT score or take the LC State Placement Exams for class registration and placement.

Official scores for the SAT (code: 0920) or ACT (code: 0429) are sent directly from the Collegeboard (SAT) or ACT website.

Career and Technical Students can submit ACT or SAT scores or can take the LC State Placement Exams.
