Admission requirements for international graduate students

    • Send the verified documents directly to our Office of Admission.
  • Letter of recommendation from an employer or previous professor

Studying in English

We require demonstration of proficiency in English for most international applicants. Submit official English test scores with your application unless you’re from Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Commonwealth Caribbean, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa or the United Kingdom. We accept the following: 

  • TOEFL paper-based score of 550+, computer-based score of 213+ or internet-based score of 80+
  • IELTS score of 6.5+
  • PTE score of 55+

We only can accept scores received directly from the testing organization. We review on an individual basis any case where an applicant’s score is below our recommended testing levels.
