An international student is anyone who is not a U.S. citizen, or classified as a permanent resident of the United States.
International students who seek admission must hold either a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or a degree equivalent to a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution.
All international students must meet the requirements for unconditional or conditional admission. Please submit all of the following information to the College of Graduate Studies:
If English is not the applicant’s native language, the applicant is required to submit an official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score report or an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report or the Pearson Test of English PTE.
A minimum score of 500 on the paper-based TOEFL, 173 on the computer-based TOEFL, or 61 on the internet-based TOEFL is required for admission. A minimum score of 5.5 on the IELTS is required for admission. A minimum score of 45 on the PTE is required for admission. The TOEFL, IELTS, or the PTE are not required for international students who have earned a bachelor’s degree from a United States regionally accredited institution.
