International Applicants

In addition to all of the general application requirements, the TOEFL is required for all applicants who have attended institutions where the primary language of instruction is not English. Our minimal TOEFL requirements are 600 for the paper-based test, 250 for the computer-based test, and 100 for the internet-based test. An IELTS score may be substituted for the TOEFL. A score of 7.5 or greater should be achieved on the IELTS.

International applicants should have ALL application materials submitted by January 1 for best consideration. This will facilitate setting up interviews and accomplishing the paperwork needed to secure visas if the applicant is accepted.
