The University has a selective admissions process, the objective of which is to identify men and women who have the highest potential for advancement in their chosen field of study. While a student applicant’s academic record is a reliable measure for the prediction of academic success, the admissions decision is more complex than admitting students on the basis of a numerical formula. With this intent, Lawrence Tech considers, in addition to the applicant’s previous academic record, factors which demonstrate an aptitude for successful study. 


Application Requirements

Application requirements vary by program, but all doctoral applicants are required to submit the following documents:

  • Completed application
  • Official college transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Research statement

In addition to the above documents, applicants may be required to submit additional documents. Please view the admission requirements for your intended degree program or contact the Office of Admissions at  with any questions.

Specific Admission Requirements

Each doctoral program has their own admission standards. Applications must be submitted at least two months before the beginning of the term expected to enroll. Once you have submitted all necessary application documents, your application will be sent to the respective doctoral program director for admission review. Please allow 2-3 weeks for an admission decision to be processed. You will be notified by email and through postal mail when a decision has been processed.
