We make applying to Lander’s online undergraduate and graduate programs simple. Below is more information about Lander admissions and the services we offer to help you complete your application, understand the process, and make a successful transition to the university.





Apply as a Freshman

To apply as a Freshman:


Freshman applicants will be evaluated on:
  • High school course prerequisites (PDF)
  • High school grade point average
  • SAT and/or ACT test scores (test optional; required for Lander academic scholarships)
  • GED scores (if applicable)

Freshman applicants will be evaluated on an individual basis on the above criteria. This criterion is used to determine the applicant’s probability of success during their freshmen year.

Apply as a Transfer

To apply as a transfer:

In order to complete your application file, follow these simple steps.

  • complete a paper or online application
  • submit final official transcripts from all colleges attended
  • be academically eligible to return to all institutions
    previously attended
  • submit final official high school transcript


Transfer Admissions Requirements

Students who have earned 12 semester hours or more of college-level work (post high school graduation):

  • 2.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale at the last college attended.
  • Earned at least 12 semester hours at the last college attended; if not, all transcripts from previous institutions will be reviewed
  • Official college transcripts sent directly from each institution attended
  • Eligible to return to all previous institutions

Students who have earned fewer than 12 semester hours of college-level work (post high school graduation) and are under 21 years of age must also meet freshman admissions requirements. 

Apply as a Graduate

To apply as a Graduate:

  • Submit an application for admission and identify yourself as a graduate student
  • Submit a final official transcript sent directly from all institutions attended
  • Students must have earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  • GRE/GMAT scores may be submitted but are not required. Our admissions office may request subsequent materials, like resumes, after the prospective student has applied.
All our admissions decisions for graduate students are made using a holistic evaluation of the student’s academic and (when appropriate) professional background.
