You may also be required to submit

  1. Transcript evaluation. You must submit an official transcript evaluation for all postsecondary schooling outside of the U.S. (except 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 for the Internet Based Test (IBT) of the TOEFl is 100. The minimum acceptable total score for the IELTS exam is 7.0. The minimum test score for the PTE is 75. 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. Programs may offer a waiver for the language requirement under certain conditions. Contact the program director or enrollment advisor for more information.
