Admission Requirements

  • A completed application for admission to the program. Completed applications and assessment records are valid for one year. Following one year, the student will need to submit an updated application, resume, and fee for the purpose of reassessing the file under the current catalog year.
  • Applicants must be supportive of the Christian mission of LeTourneau University through the integration of the Christian faith with learning and must sign a Behavioral Expectations Agreement, which ensures their understanding and acceptance of the behaviors that are expected of them as students of LeTourneau. See the Behavioral Expectations Agreement here.
  • Applicants whose native language is not English must submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score. You must attain a score of at least 525 (paper-based), 197 (computer-based), or 71 (Internet based) on the entire test in order to be considered for admission.
  • For regular admissions acceptance, the applicant must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum grade point average of 2.8 (on a 4.0 scale)*. Applicants who do not meet the GPA requirements for regular acceptance into the graduate program will be allowed to enter on academic probation if the GPA for their last 60 hours is at least 2.80 (on a 4.00 scale) and all other admissions criteria are successfully met.
  • Provide a well-written 2-page essay that discusses a difficult professional situation you have faced and how you have used your strengths and your expertise to succeed in spite of the challenge. What did you learn from the experience? Explain how what you have learned shaped your current thinking, behavior, and goals. Content, writing mechanics, style, and clarity will be considered in the admission decision.

*It will be helpful for applicants with lower than a 2.80 GPA to provide a resume. Work experience, especially in leadership and/or management roles will be considered in making those admission decisions.

For applicants with foreign transcripts, a copy of the original transcript will be accepted, preferably with an English translation. Transcripts, however, must be evaluated course by course by either Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE), World Education Services, Inc. (WES), or SpanTran Educational Services, Inc. before evaluation and processing by LeTourneau University.
