You must submit your ACT or SAT scores along with your high school transcript and a completed application before May 1.
You can fill out the Lyon Application online, but the printed Common Application is best if your high school guidance counselor will submit paperwork on your behalf.
All applicants are automatically considered for school scholarships.
