Student Name (please print) __________________________________________ID# _________________________________
Thank you for choosing Wayland Baptist University. The degree-seeking category is available for any student who wishes to pursue a graduate
degree, has completed the graduate application processes and who meets all admission requirements. In order to attend WBU your first
semester, you must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution and complete the following requirements for admission:

          GPA 2.5 or higher during last 60 hours
               (Degree-seeking students need to meet with the Graduate Advisor to get details on the GPA requirements).
          Application for Graduate Degree Student
               (This is a two-page form on which you will list your personal data: name, address, phone numbers, citizenship, SSN and other colleges, universities
               and institutions attended. You should indicate your intended degree program).
          Application Fee Payment ($50)
               (A non-refundable fee of $50 is required. Current and former Wayland students are exempted from this fee).
          Credit Agreement Form
               (This is a one page from that requires you to list personal information and two references, one relative and non-relative. This form is required of all
               students. We cannot process your registration paperwork until this form has been completed).
          Proof of Transcripts from every college attended
               (Students wishing to enroll in courses for their first term must provide at minimum a photocopy of all transcripts. Students should request official
               transcripts to follow shortly thereafter).
          Completion of leveling requirements
               (Students will not be allowed to enroll in graduate classes until they have completed the prerequisites. Leveling work must have a grade of “C” or
               better to satisfy degree requirements).
          Conditional Enrollment Form
               (Required if students are wishing to enroll for one term without submitting the below documents).
In addition, you will need to submit the following before registering for a second term at Wayland Baptist University. If it is
discovered that a student is enrolled without meeting the graduate requirements, the student may be withdrawn from classes:

          Official Transcript(s) from every college or university attended
               (You must request a transcript from every college or university you have attended, including a transcript with your Baccalaureate degree posted, to
               be mailed directly to the Hawaii Campus. Hand-carried transcripts are considered official only if they are presented to Wayland in a sealed
               letterhead envelope from the issuing institution. The transcript must bear the college seal, date, and appropriate signature. Even if the courses of
               one college are listed on another college’s transcript, we must receive a separate transcript from each institution. There are no exceptions.)

          Medical History Form
          Proof of Immunizations (required by HI state law)
          How did you hear about WBU?
          Meeting with Hawaii Graduate Program Coordinator
               (Students are to set up an appointment with the Program Coordinator prior to enrolling in their first semester)
If for some reason a student elects to change degree status, they may do so by filling out the appropriate application and meeting
all the requirements for the category that they seek. A required $50 change of degree fee will be required each time the student
change a degree status. This fee is different from the application fee; therefore no students will be exempted from this fee if they
change degrees.

Students must meet one of the following conditions to be eligible for admission as degree seeking student

    1.   Applicants with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher on the last 60 graded hours earned are guaranteed
         admission to the graduate program.
    2.   Applicants with a GPA of 2.70 to 2.999 on the last 60 graded hours earned must submit a writing sample
         approved by the university.
    3.   Applicants with a GPA of 2.50 to 2.699 on the last 60 graded hours earned may be admitted on a probationary
         status. Students under this category must submit a writing sample approved by the university. Upon grading of
         the sample, the student may be required to participate in an interview process.

The writing sample that students will be required to take is called Criterion from ETS. The writing prompts are the
analytical writing prompts used on the GRE exam. You can review these prompts at the following website:
The university has elected to require a minimum score of 4 for the writing sample to be accepted for admission into
graduate school. Students will only be allowed one chance at the writing sample. The fee for the writing sample exam is
$10 payable to Wayland Baptist University. A user name and password will be provided to you to take your exam at the
Hawaii Campus Wayland Baptist University computer lab.

Students who fail the writing sample will be required to take the GRE examination. The following is the criteria in which
the GRE scores are evaluated. Students must meet one of the following conditions to be eligible for admission as degree
seeking student.

    1.   A total verbal-quantitative GRE score of 850 or higher. A minimum score of 300 on the GRE verbal is required

    2.   A total of 16 or more graduate entry points computed by the following formula: (GRE Verbal/100 +
         Quantitative/100) + (GPA x 3) = Graduate entry points. GRE V+Q is the combined GRE verbal and quantitative
         scores and the GPA is the grade point average for the last 60 semester hours completed at the time of application.
         A minimum score of 300 on the GRE Verbal is required.

    3.   A total of 16 or more points computed by the following formula: (GMAT/60) + (GPA x 3) = Graduate entry
         points. The GPA is for the last 60 hours completed at the time of registration

    4.   An earned graduate degree from a regionally accredited university. An applicant holding such a degree is not
         required to submit GRE/GMAT scores.
Applicants failing to meet the minimum required scores or having fewer than 16 graduate entry points must re-take the
GRE or GMAT and/or improve the GPA for the last 60 semester hours before reapplying to the Graduate Program.

Wayland Baptist University will only accept scores from ETS. Student copies of the scores will only be accepted when
their original scores are more than five (5) years old and they provide proof from ETS that they have been destroyed. At
no time, will a photocopy of a score report be accepted.

                                                    LEVELING COURSES

          Every master’s degree program is based on the assumption that the participating student possesses a general
college education through the baccalaureate level. Accordingly, the first prerequisite for the entering student is a
baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. In some instances, the Graduate Admission Committee may
require a student to strengthen undergraduate knowledge and abilities or meet specific program prerequisites by transcript
evidence, course enrollment, or examination. Such requirements must be completed before the student enrolls in the
course for which the requirements are prerequisite.
          The Graduate Admissions Committee has prescribed leveling courses for students who wish to enter a particular
graduate program. These courses will be in addition to the 36 hours (or more) required for the master’s degree itself.
Leveling courses are not used in calculating graduate GPA. A student must earn a grade of “C” or better in any leveling
work required.
          In accordance with University undergraduate policy a student may satisfy leveling requirements by examination.
Examination scores from such as CLEP or DANTES, used to meet any leveling requirement will not be posted to the
graduate level transcript. A graduate course cannot serve as both a leveling requirement and a graduate elective.
          Leveling is a firm requirement of the Graduate Program. Wayland will not accept graduate transfer credit from
other institutions unless leveling or prerequisite coursework has been satisfactorily completed.
