Admissions Requirements - Healthcare Administration, MS

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.

  1. Submit a completed application for admission to the program. Completed applications are valid for one year.
  2. Submit official transcripts of all undergraduate work and any graduate work, attempted or completed, sent directly to the appropriate Academic Advisor designated at the time of application. Failure to provide a complete record of all academic work may result in the student not being accepted into the university or, if already enrolled, being withdrawn from the university.
  3. 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: The Evaluation Company before evaluation and processing by LeTourneau University.
  4. 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 2.80 (on a 4.00 scale). Applicants who do not meet the GPA requirements for regular acceptance into the graduate program may 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.
  5. Applicants whose native language is not English must submit a paper test score of at least 550, a computer test score of 197, or an internet based test score of 71 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or a test score of at least 590 on the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC).
  6. Applicants must be supportive of the Christian mission of LeTourneau University through the integration of the Christian faith with learning.
  7. The decision of the Graduate Admissions Committee will be final. Applicants to graduate programs who do not meet the GPA requirements for entrance must submit a resume that includes relevant full-time work experience. Upon review of the resume and other admissions materials, the Graduate Admissions Committee may admit the applicant on academic probation or may give students the option of taking the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE) to receive further consideration. The GMAT is the preferred exam for MBA applicants.

Provisional Acceptance

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.

Acceptance of Transfer Credits

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.

Request to Change Degree Programs

Students may change degree programs with the following provisions:

  • Students must meet all the admissions requirements for the new program.
  • Students who wish to change from one program to another must submit the Program Update Form through their Academic Advisor. All previous academic work will be reassessed through the Assessment Office on the main campus. A $25 assessment fee will be charged to the student.

Readmission to the University

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.
