Applications and supporting materials for all graduate study must be submitted through the online application site for the LSU Graduate School: Official transcripts, official test scores, and other materials that come from third-party sources must be mailed to: 

Graduate Admissions
114 West David Boyd Hall
Baton Rouge, LA 70803

 These paper documents are stored electronically and departments have access to all materials
submitted by and/or on behalf of a student applying to graduate study. 

To be admitted to the MAT, MA, MEd, EdS, or PhD programs, a student must complete normal Graduate School application procedures by deadlines established by The Graduate School. Applicants will be expected to provide appropriate documentation upon request for admission into the various degree programs. Documents include transcripts, GRE, three letters of recommendation, and TOEFL or IELTS scores for international students whose native language is not English. Applicants are accepted all year with the exception of Higher Education which has a deadline of March 1. Minimum requirements for admission into all degree programs are a combined score of 297 on the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE (153 verbal / 144 quantitative), and an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0, or the last 60 hours of course work. Lower GRE scores may be considered contingent on the GPA.

After completed application materials are received from The Graduate School, faculty panels in each degree program review and make admission recommendations to the department chair. Upon approval of the department, students are notified of acceptance by The Graduate School.
