Dallas Baptist University welcomes applications from persons seeking a Christian education with high academic standards. Individuals who have demonstrated the ability and desire to excel in their chosen field have a greater chance of successfully completing a degree. The University reserves the right to restrict or deny admission to any applicant who is not considered to be an appropriate degree candidate as determined by the University.
Admission decisions will be made in a manner consistent with state and federal non-discrimination laws. Applications for admission are considered holistically without regard to age, sex, disability, race, color, or national origin. In order to promote a broad learning environment, DBU welcomes applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.
The applicant’s academic record should show evidence of academic preparation and the ability to succeed in graduate studies. A satisfactory grade point average does not guarantee admission to graduate studies. Numerous factors are considered, including personality and character, leadership potential, professional or military experience, potential for service as a Christian professional, and results of an admissions examination such as the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) or Graduate Record Examinations® (GRE®), or the Graduate Management Test (GMAT) when required for the specific program.
In certain cases, a student may be required to enroll in prerequisite courses to make up any deficiencies in the major field of study, and personal interviews may be requested prior to admission.
Students desiring admission to any degree program must apply specifically for that program. Admission to one graduate program does not guarantee admission to another.
While former DBU students are encouraged to apply, previously receiving a degree from DBU does not guarantee admission.
