LeTourneau University is a private, interdenominational Christian university in Longview, Texas. It was founded in 1946 by R.G. LeTourneau and his wife Evelyn as LeTourneau Technical Institute for the purpose of serving the educational needs of war veterans coming home at the close of WW-II. In 1961, the coeducational LeTourneau College was born followed by a period of sustained growth culminating in 1989 when the college became officially known as LeTourneau University.
Today, LeTourneau is a highly recognized institution of higher education offering over 60 four-year and two-year academic programs in engineering, technology, the liberal arts, business, aeronautical science, education and the sciences, and master’s degree programs in business. It is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Engineering Accreditation Commission and the Technology Accreditation Commission.
Recognizing that today’s hectic lifestyle may prevent working professionals from pursuing higher education that may help advance their careers, LeTourneau offers online Graduate and Professional Studies that guarantee the same high quality of education and instruction as its on-campus offerings. These online degree programs include Associate Degrees; Bachelor in Business; Interdisciplinary Studies (TEACH); Master in Business Administration; Master in Education; and Teacher Certification in Texas (PACT). Because of their accessibility, online degree courses are faster to complete.
Tuition costs vary depending on the degree program selected and may range from US$202 to US$620 per credit hour. While online programs may cost the same as on-campus courses, students are able to realize considerable savings when they opt for online education because they immediately do away with cost of room and board. Financial aid is available to students who qualify.
LeTourneau’s online education was ranked 5th by the Online Education Database (OEDb).
