ConnectLR is Lenoir-Rhyne University's Application System.  Through ConnectLR you can apply for admission (See the Application Listing below), register for events, and, check the status of your application and supplemental items. When you go to the ConnectLR site you will need to  enter an email address, which will become your user name and  set a password. The information that you enter to create an account will automatically appear in the appropriate fields when you submit an application.  
If you're not ready to apply, create an account anyway to stay connected with what's happening at Lenoir-Rhyne.  Just make sure to remember the email you use to create the account and your password (although if you forget; you can always request a password reset from the Log-In page).  Note:  For undergraduate students who apply via the Rising Leaders Application or the CFNC site:  ConnectLR is a separate system and requires a different username and password than you used to complete those applications.
