Undergraduate Admission Requirements
LeTourneau University accepts adult learners for the undergraduate programs on the basis of their qualifications. Decisions for admission are based on previous academic records and the student’s potential to succeed in a university setting.
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 from the institution 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of all academic work may result in the student not being accepted into the university or, if already enrolled, being withdrawn from the university.
Applicants with 15 semester hours of college-level work or less from regionally accredited institutions or ACE credits must provide a final, official high school transcript, official GED certificate, or official ACT or SAT scores.
Homeschooled students with 15 semester hours of college-level work or less are required to submit the information listed in the previous points, except that in place of an official high school transcript, the homeschooled student must submit a detailed transcript of their program of studies, signed by their teacher. This transcript should include the type of curriculum used for home studies, and the name of any coordinating organization. Any other information describing the applicant's extracurricular activities, internships, etc., may also be submitted. An SAT or ACT score must be submitted. Since home school curricula vary greatly, a significant amount of emphasis must be placed on the standardized test score to determine eligibility for admission. Homeschooled students are encouraged, but not required, to obtain a GED through the appropriate state agency.
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.
For regular admission, applicants must have an overall GPA of 2.50 in previous college academic work or an equivalent high school GPA if they have no previous college work. Applicants with less than a 2.50 overall GPA may be considered for admission on academic probation or academic observation. Only grades of C or above in college-level work will be considered for transfer.
3. 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).
4. 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.
