International Admission Requirements

How to Apply for International Admission

Please use your name as it appears on your passport on your application and on all other communication with Lamar University.

  1. Submit Application.All international graduate applicants should submit online applications through the Apply Texas system. Graduate applicants must select the International Graduate Application. Courses for this program are offered fully online, and therefore residency in the US is not required to complete the program. If you are an international applicant interested in an online program, please note that admission to this, or any other fully online program, does not fulfill the academic requirements to apply for an F-1 or J-1 visa. You will not be eligible to travel to the US or to obtain a visa upon admission to an online program.

  2. Submit Academic Records.

    International Academic Records:
    Graduate applicants must have an official report of course-by-course evaluated transcripts of all post-secondary work from outside the United States sent to Lamar University directly from one of the evaluating agencies listed in the previous link. Graduate students applying to colleges outside of Engineering and Arts and Sciences and enroll at Lamar University will be reimbursed the cost of the evaluation up to $200.00. The Lamar University Admissions Office does not evaluate international transcripts internally, so you do not need to send official transcripts to our office. These agencies may deliver your evaluation by email at LUAdmTran@Lamar.edu, or to the mailing address listed below:

    Lamar University
    Graduate Admissions
    PO Box 11614
    Beaumont, TX 77710

    Or, if sending documents by courier:

    Lamar University Office of Admissions
    211 Redbird Ln
    Beaumont, TX 77710

    United States Academic Records: Applicants who have attended institutions in the United States, must submit official transcripts from each college previously attended. This requirement applies regardless of the length of time in attendance and regardless of whether credit was earned or is desired. Students will not be considered for admission until all college transcripts are on file. Students must be eligible to re-enter all colleges and universities previously attended.

  3. English Proficiency Requirement. Proof of English Proficiency is a university requirement for all international students regardless of if they are online or on-campus. Therefore, the only form of receiving a waiver from taking TOEFL or IELTS are as follows:
  • Are from an English waiver country
  • Have completed 48 credits of secondary/post-secondary school from an English waiver country
  • Have completed 48 credits of secondary/post-secondary school, taught in English
  • Have completed a level 112 of Intensive English at a U.S. institution
  • Have completed English Composition I and II, or the equivalent, from an accredited US institution with a grade of "B" or better on a 4.0 scale.
  • Have earned a degree from or have attended two consecutive years at an accredited U.S. institution.

If there is a circumstance outside of the above waiver criteria that you would like us to consider, please let Vocology Admissions know via e-mail and we will review the possibility of granting a waiver.
