About Your Location (online students only):

Every state in the U.S. creates its own specific regulations about online enrollment of the students who live within the state. Some states require fees and/or application efforts that require a considerable investment of university resources. In an effort to maintain a reasonable tuition rate, Graceland’s education programs do not admit students who live in Maryland.

Graceland accepts students from Texas, but is not regulated in Texas under Chapter 132 of the Texas Higher Education Code.

  1. For International Students Only:
  2. Complete numbers 1-7 above.
  3. Prior to consideration for admission, students who received their undergraduate degree from a country other than the United States or Canada must submit an evaluation report by Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). http://www.ece.org.
  4. Contact 866-893-6882 for further instructions on additional documentation needed.
