Lakewood University’s admissions policy is oriented to adult learners, including military members, who typically have previously completed high school, undergraduate-level courses, military training, or earned credit by examination. Lakewood University is open to all applicants without discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, or sex. All applicants desiring to pursue formal programs of study culminating in the award of an academic credential are admitted to the school as regular students provided the following conditions have been met: To be admitted, the student must be a high school graduate or at least 18 years of age with a high school diploma or its equivalent, as well as, receive and review certain disclosures, and sign an enrollment agreement.

To enroll as a bachelor’s degree candidate, a student must have earned their GED or high school diploma, with a minimum GPA of 2.50* supported by official transcripts. 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. Bachelor’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, in order 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.
