MOL Admission Requirements

Admission to the MOL Program

Admission to the Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) program is selective. The admissions process for this Organizational Leadership degree evaluates applicants on the basis of previous academic performance, personal and professional accomplishments and goals, and strength of character. A strong desire to complete graduate-level work in a Christ-centered, biblically-based community is important.

Prerequisite coursework

All applicants to CCU's MOL program are required to have fulfilled a prerequisite course for Statistics.

Review the MOL Prerequisites prior to application submission.

Admission requirements

  • Complete the graduate admission application online (including essay if GPA is below 2.5).
  • Submit an official transcript that reflects a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited higher education institution.
  • Admission also depends on evaluation of academic performance, and candidates must have a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Applicants with an undergraduate grade point average between 2.0 and 2.49 will be admitted on a conditional admit (CAD) basis for the first semester. CAD students must maintain a 3.0 GPA or better in their first nine (9) credits to remain in the program.
  • Complete (grade C or better) any needed prerequisite courses. Review the MOL prerequisites prior to application submission.
  • Preferred, a minimum of five years of combined experience in any professional endeavors specific to organizational/community-wide leadership and development. Or, submit a brief admission cover letter to the Office of Admission (500-1,000 words) about your life experiences, specifically:

    • Your employment history, including part-time summer jobs, volunteerism, exemplary athletics, scouting, recognized academic excellence, honor societies, or missions field work;
    • Include key influences that shaped your worldview for better or worse;
    • How you have managed to apply key learnings or overcome adversity, if applicable, and/or contributed to other's well-being, emotional and social development and commitments to God, family, liberty and justice.
  • The Office of Admission reserves the right to request additional information as deemed necessary to make a selection decision.
