International Application Process

  1. Submit a free online application. Complete the application for admission in its entirety. An application without completed essays, contact information, or listed references will be considered incomplete until that information is provided.
  2. Submit official transcripts. You must provide official transcripts from each secondary and post-secondary school attended. These transcripts must be officially translated into English and must be sent directly from the school(s). Official transcripts for schools outside of the United States must be evaluated by an approved international credentialing service. Please submit official transcripts to the World Education Services (WES) or ACEI Global. This evaluation will take approximately two to four weeks so please plan accordingly. Documents sent directly to the university without evaluation are considered unofficial and will not be acceptable for admission.
  3. Demonstrate English proficiency. Applicants from non-English speaking countries are required to submit official exam results demonstrating English proficiency. We accept the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the IELTS with minimum passing scores (see below).
  4. Interview with the admissions committee as applicable.
