Graduate Admission

Our online programs are developed with input from advisors to bring you relevant curriculum in a variety of industries. Courses are taught online by dedicated professionals who bring real-world experience and passion into the classroom.

To enroll as a Master’s degree candidate, a student must have earned a bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited college or university, with a minimum GPA of 2.50* supported by official transcripts. Students who apply and do not have a Bachelor’s degree in business or a related field will need to take an entrance exam. The entrance exam is administered by Lakewood University and was created by the Lakewood University Business Committee. The student must score an 80% or higher in order to be admitted to the Master’s program. Official transcripts must be submitted no later than 16 weeks after the start of the program. If official transcripts are not submitted on or before the 16th week into the program, the student will be dismissed. No GMAT or GRE exam score is required. Master’s degree candidates will enroll in and pay for one semester at a time with a separate enrollment agreement. Students may access their first course, a noncredit Orientation, shortly after the initial enrollment is processed. Students must receive a passing grade in this course, and their official transcripts must be approved, to maintain their student status.

*Students who do not meet the 2.50 GPA requirement for admission to a graduate degree or certificate program may be “conditionally” admitted. To move from “conditional” to “fully admitted” status, students must successfully complete the first nine (9) credit hours of graduate course work, in sequence, excluding the Orientation course, with a grade of “B” or higher in each course. Students admitted under conditional status who do not meet the requirements stated above are dismissed from their graduate degree or certificate program.

All degree programs and undergraduate/graduate certificate students are required to have access to a computer with MSWord®, PowerPoint®, and Excel®, and video recording software. Students must also have Internet access and an active e-mail address.
