Application Checklist

Step 1

Choose your program

We offer a variety of graduate degrees and certificates in multiple formats. Our program finder can point you toward more information about the application process for the degree you’re interested in, and we have a few unique options for studying in our graduate program. 

Application Considerations

Dual-Degree Programs

If you are interested in pursuing one of Lipscomb University’s dual-degree programs, you must apply for admission to both programs. 

Online Graduate Programs

Lipscomb University’s online graduate programs are open to all applicants, regardless of distance, and all learning occurs completely online. Learn more about Lipscomb Online.

Auditing

Non-degree seeking students are permitted to audit a course provided (a) there is space in the classroom and (b) the number of auditors is not more than 20 percent of the credit students. The fee for auditing a course is 50 percent of regular tuition and no credit is earned. With permission of the professor, you may change your registration from credit to audit or from audit to credit during the first four weeks of the semester or equivalent time in non-semester terms. After this time, the options are to continue as registered or to withdraw from the course.

Step 2

Submit your test scores

Some programs require the GRE or other standardized test scores. These should be submitted via an official score report from ETS, either by paper or electronically.

Step 3
