The Graduate School

Step-By-Step Application Process

Students interested in applying to The Graduate School should review their program of interest for additional information on required application materials.

All applicants to The Graduate School submit:

Transcript Evaluation

Applicants who completed post-secondary education abroad are required to submit non-U.S. transcripts to Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE) for evaluation of credentials. The evaluation report must show that your non-U.S. education is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree to be considered for admission. You may use one of two services for this:

Educational Perspectives
Request the "General Report."

Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE)
Request the "General Evaluation with Grade Average."

Please request that the evaluation be sent directly to Graduate & Professional Enrollment Management. We will receive an e-mail from the evaluator upon the completion of the evaluation and an online copy will be made available to us. You will not need to mail a separate copy.

Copies and faxes are not accepted as official documents; we must receive the report directly. Applicants currently enrolled in a program should not request the evaluation until the last term of enrollment, or until after graduation. If an evaluation is requested prior to the last term of enrollment, the equivalency of a U.S. bachelor's degree cannot be established or verified.

The evaluation is waived for applicants who have completed a master's degree from an accredited U.S. institution.
