Online Application Requirements

To be considered complete, the following must be included in the online application:

  • Completed online application with non-refundable application fee

Additional Application Requirements

  • Transcripts: All admitted students will be required to submit official, sealed academic transcripts with proof of their bachelor’s degree. There is no need to submit transcripts at the time when you first apply; you may do so after admission. Once admitted, please submit transcripts from all of the colleges and/or universities you have attended, whether or not a degree program was completed or the credits appear as transfer credits on another transcript.

    International applicants should upload the English-language version of their transcripts or a copy of a credentialed evaluation. For a list of acceptable foreign credential evaluation services, please visit naces.org.

International Applicants

  • English language evaluation
    Applicants who have not completed a degree in a country in which English is the principal language must submit one of the following: an official TOEFL score of at least 80 (internet-based test) or 550 (paper-based test), an official IELTS score of 6.0 with no individual band score below 5.5, a PTE Academic Score of at least 53, or a Duolingo English Test (DTE) Score of at least 110. Test date must be within the past two years. TOEFL code: 5246. TOEFL exemptions can be found here.
  • Transcript evaluation
    All students who attended an institution outside of the United States must provide a detailed, course-by-course transcript evaluation. This evaluation is not just an English translation, but a document provided by an accredited evaluating agency that shows all grades, course titles, credit hours, United States degree equivalency, grade-point average (GPA), and date of degree conferral. A list of acceptable foreign credential evaluation services is available through the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). Credentials evaluations are also accepted from the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO).
