LeTourneau University is dedicated to quality instruction that seeks to educate the whole person through the integration of the Christian faith with learning. The university admits students who are supportive of its mission and who are most likely to benefit from an education presented from this unique perspective.
Regular admissions status may be granted after all admissions requirements have been met.
Admitted students may also have admissions conditions, such as academic observation or academic probation, as outlined in the Student Policies section. Notification of regular or provisional admission, along with any conditions, is sent to the applicant after review and approval of all admissions documents.
LeTourneau University accepts graduate students on the basis of their qualifications. Decisions made by the Admissions Committee are based upon predictors of academic success such as previous academic records, professional and managerial work experience, appropriate interpersonal skills, writing ability, and the student's potential to succeed at the graduate level.
In some cases, the Graduate Admissions Committee may assign leveling courses, such as ENGL5113 Writing with Power and Style for students with weak writing abilities.
While personal interviews are not normally required, they may be requested of some applicants prior to admission. The university reserves the right to admit only students who hold promise of academic success and whose personal character and ethics are consistent with the institutional mission. Withdrawal may be required should an applicant intentionally withhold or falsify pertinent information.
Undergraduate seniors may apply for admission to the Master degree programs through the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. Documentation of degree completion or intent to graduate must be provided by the granting institution's registrar. If the student meets all other entrance requirements, the student will be accepted provisionally into the program. Students on Provisional Acceptance will be limited to 12 credit hours in the graduate program. The student must notify their Advisor when their undergraduate degree has been conferred. The student will then be changed to a regular admission status. Graduate courses that are taken during an undergraduate program will not count toward undergraduate financial aid eligibility.
Applicants may transfer in graduate credit up to 25% of the specific program, provided a grade of B or above was received, the graduate credit was earned at a regionally accredited institution, and the courses have been evaluated as equivalent by LeTourneau University.
Students may change degree programs with the following provisions:
Students who have withdrawn from the university or have not attended for one calendar year must submit an updated application and official transcripts of coursework attempted since their last date of enrollment at LeTourneau. The university reserves the right to review each re-entry application. Re-entering students must be in good standing with the university academically, behaviorally, and financially. Students returning after discontinuing studies for more than one year will come under the requirements of the newest LeTourneau University catalog.
