Applicants should submit the following:
- Completed application form. (www.lynn.edu/apply)
- Official transcripts from all institutions of higher learning (for transfer students) or official high school transcripts or GED score report.
- Personal statement.
- $45 non-refundable application fee (waived if application is submitted electronically).
Upon admission to Lynn University, transfer students will receive an evaluation of transfer credits provided by the Office of the Registrar. Transfer credit is awarded for courses successfully completed at a regionally accredited institution or an institution whose accrediting organization is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Official transcripts from each institution attended must be submitted in order for the Office of the Registrar to complete a formal transferevaluation. Courses completed outside of the United States require students to submit an official foreign credential evaluation and translation along with their official transcripts. Each transfer evaluation is reviewed by the Office of Academic Affairs and/or appropriate college faculty.
A course evaluated as equivalent to a Lynn course is accepted as that course. A course evaluated as not equivalent is accepted as an elective. If a preliminary evaluation is completed for a student based on an unofficial transcript, that evaluation will not be considered final until official documentation is received and reviewed for accuracy.
Although credits transfer in from other institutions, grades do not. Transfer courses are listed on the transcript with a grade of “T.” A student’s Lynn grade point average is based solely on courses completed at Lynn University. Transfer students must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours at Lynn University.
International applicants must also provide:
- Official TOEFL/IELTS/PTE Academic scores if English is not the applicant’s first language. Applicants with a minimum TOEFL score of 71 (Internet-based), a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 or a minimum PTE Academic score of 50 will be considered for admission. To register, contact TOEFL (www.toefl.org), IELTS (www.ielts.org) or PTE (www.pearsonpte.com). Consideration may be given to students who fall slightly below Lynn University’s TOEFL/IELTS/PTE Academic English requirement. These cases will be reviewed on an individual basis by the Office of Admission. Applicants from Australia, Bermuda, Canada, the Commonwealth Caribbean, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa or the United Kingdom are not required to submit proof of English proficiency test scores.
- International Transcript Evaluation and course equivalency report for students who have attended schools outside of the United States.
