A student entering the MSKW Program must have completed a bachelor's degree in a related field or obtain special permission by the MSKW Graduate Faculty. The prospective student must also have submitted a combined score on the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE of 800 or better and must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 on any graduate work transferred into the program. Finally the prospect must have a GPA of at least 2.5 on undergraduate work or a minimum of 2.75 in the final 60 undergraduate hours taken (based upon a 4.0 scale).
Transfer Students: Up to six hours of transfer credit can be accepted upon approval by the Program Director. No grade of C or lower is acceptable for transfer. More than six hours requires approval of the LSU Shreveport Graduate Council. In both cases decisions are made on the relationship of the courses in question to student goals and congruency with the MSKW direction.
