Steps to Apply: Graduate Students

Master's Checklist:

In order to recieve admission into LeTourneau University as an international student, applicants must provide the university with the following documents and information:

  • 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 and fee for the purpose of reassessing the file under the current catalog year.

  • Official Transcripts

    Official transcripts of all undergraduate work and any graduate work attempted or completed should be sent directly to the appropriate Admissions Counselor 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of all academic work may result in the student not being accepted into the university, or if already enrolled, being withdrawn from the university.

    For applicants with foreign transcripts, a copy of the original transcript will be accepted, with an English translation.
