PhD Student Application Information
The procedures for admission to the PhD program differ depending on whether the student is currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at LSU or not. Students currently enrolled at LSU in a graduate degree program have already been admitted by the Graduate School, and these students need only apply for admission through the appropriate department in the E. J. Ourso College of Business. All other students must make a formal application for admission through the LSU Graduate School.
The admissions procedures require that each student submit credentials to the LSU Graduate School. When the credentials file is complete, the student’s records are forwarded to the college and department for consideration. The critical decision regarding admission is made by a departmental committee. Please note that the departmental committee will not consider students whose file with the LSU Graduate School is incomplete.
