As an international student, you may need to meet additional requirements when you apply, such as submitting proof of English proficiency and getting your foreign credentials evaluated.
In addition to the application requirements for your specific academic program, as an international applicant, you'll also need to submit the following documentation to be considered for admission:
A foreign academic credential evaluation helps our admissions team understand the courses you have taken, grades earned, or the degree you received from an institution outside of the United States. If you are applying to one of our programs with foreign credentials,
you'll need to obtain an independent credential evaluation to determine U.S. equivalency.
We recommend these agencies for your credential evaluation. Please contact the agencies directly for more information about their services.
Undergraduate Transfer Credential EvaluationCourse-by-course evaluations are required for admission into undergraduate programs only if you attended a college or university abroad. You do not need to submit a credential evaluation for high school transcripts.
Graduate Credential EvaluationGeneral or document-by-document evaluations are required for admission into graduate programs.
The transcripts you submit with your application must be original documents, bearing the official institution or college stamp, and must be received by our Admissions Office in envelopes sealed and unopened by the sending institution. Transcripts must be in English. If your transcript is not in English, please supply a notarized official translation of the transcript.
If an official credential evaluation is submitted, unofficial transcripts are acceptable so long as official transcripts were provided to the evaluation agency.
We want you to be successful in your program. If your native language is not English, we require that you show English proficiency.
Choose 1 of these 5 options:
1. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
2. IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
3. Official Cambridge English Exam
4. English as a Second Language (ESL) Program PartnershipsWe have partnered with 5 language schools to help you meet the English requirement.
If English is not your native language, but you've graduated from a school or program that was taught in English, you may qualify to have the requirement waived.
If it's not noted on your transcript, request a letter from your high school, college, or university stating your language of instruction was English.
