• Admission

    Undergraduate and graduate admission requirements are different. Please follow the instructions or process for the academic level of study for which you are applying.

    International Undergraduate

    • International undergraduate applicants usually, but not always, have a single office on a campus to help them, regardless of the program of interest (e.g. Mathematics, Business, History).

    • Private scholarships or grants are the primary forms of financial aid for international undergraduate students.

    • English language proficiency requirements vary at each college or university. Many institutions have established specific test scores as a means of checking English language proficiency. Click here for information about English Language Proficiency Test services. You will need to check the English language requirements at the institution of your choice.

    • It may be necessary to have your academic credentials translated and evaluated as part of the admission process. Credential evaluation services evaluate and convert educational credentials from any country in the world into their U.S. equivalents by describing each certificate, diploma or degree you have earned and stating its academic equivalency in the United States. A number of American institutions of higher education will require you to submit an evaluation of your credentials before admitting you to study. Check the requirement at the institution of your choice. Click here for information about credential evaluation services.

       

    International Graduate

    • International graduate applicants usually, but not always, need to work with the academic department that offers the specific program of interest (e.g. Biophysics).

    • Financial assistance most often is available in the form of research assistant or teaching assistant positions or as private scholarships.

    • English language proficiency requirements are often higher for participation in graduate level programs. Click here for information about English Language Proficiency Test services. You will need to check the English language requirements at the institution of your choice. Please be aware that in graduate programs, each program may have different requirements so you also need to check with the specific program for your interest.

    • The standardized test scores required for admission depend on the program. Although many programs require test scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), programs in law schools usually require the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and business programs often require scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).
