Admission to the MSBME program as a regular graduate student requires the demonstration of high potential for success based on the following:
- Submission of the Online Application for Graduate Admission
- Official transcripts of all college work*,**
- A minimum of one Letter of Recommendation (employers and professors are preferred);
- Statement of Purpose (Optional, 1 page)
*Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited U.S. institution –or– a non-U.S. degree equivalent to a four-year U.S. baccalaureate degree from a college or university of government recognized standing.
** A Bachelor of Science degree in engineering or technical related field and plan to complete specified undergraduate curriculum courses (minimum GPA of 3.0);
Students with a GPA lower than 3.0 or with baccalaureate degree in a field other than engineering may be admitted on a provisional basis. These students must satisfy prerequisite requirements as determined by the MSBME Graduate Admissions Committee before they can be granted official graduate status. They will be evaluated for official graduate student status upon completion of six semester hours of graduate coursework, achieving a minimum grade of 3.0 in each course. All coursework must be completed within five years after the program is started.
MSBME TRANSFER POLICY
For applicants transferring from other graduate programs into the MSBME program, no more than six graduate semester credit hours may be transferred, and these must be from an accredited institution. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the MSBME Graduate Admissions Committee. A minimum grade of 3.0 must have been achieved in all transfer courses. Credit for courses taken in a graduate program other than biomedical engineering will be reviewed to determine whether they may be substituted within the MSBME program at Lawrence Tech. A request for transfer courses to be considered must be made in writing at the time of application and must be accompanied by transcripts, course descriptions, and syllabi for each proposed transfer course.
