  1. Transcript evaluation
    You must submit an official transcript evaluation for all postsecondary schooling outside of the U.S. (except for study abroad coursework), regardless of the language of the instruction or transcript. We accept evaluations from Educational Credential Evaluators or Educational Perspectives. If you have a U.S. master's or doctoral degree, you may skip this evaluation.
  2. English language test requirement
    An official TOEFL, IELTS, or Pearson Test of English (PTE) score report is required for international applicants whose native language is not English. The minimum acceptable total score on the Internet-Based Test (IBT) of the TOEFL exam is 90. The minimum acceptable total score on the IELTS exam is 6.5. The minimum acceptable score for the PTE exam is 61. This requirement is waived for those who have completed a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree program or for those who are citizens of or have completed a bachelor's degree at a recognized institution at which the language of instruction is English in these countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand.
