International Graduate Admission Requirements


Transcripts and diplomas must display an original signature of a school official and/or the school’s seal. Documents written in a foreign language must be translated and signed by an accredited credential educational service. The originals of these documents must be submitted along with the translated copies. Transcripts and diplomas must be mailed directly to the Office of Graduate Admissions.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required if English is not the applicant’s native language. International applicants must attain a minimum score of 500 on the paper based exam and 173 on the computer exam. A waiver of the TOEFL requirement will be granted if the applicant has earned a degree from an institution whose programs are taught in English.

Note: The Form I-20 will only be issued to international applicants who have been accepted to a degree program and have submitted the required tuition deposit.
