Language Test Requirement

An official TOEFL or IELTS score report is required for international applicants whose native language is not English. For the TOEFL, a score of at least 79 on the Internet-based or 550 on the written-based test is required. For the IELTS, a minimum score of 6.5 is required. Copies and faxes are not accepted as official documents; we must receive test scores directly from the testing service.

This requirement is waived for those who have completed a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree program, an accredited master's program in the U.S., or 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.

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. Your evaluation must show that your non-U.S. education is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree to be considered for admission.

Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE)

Please request a General Evaluation with Grade Average for your undergraduate studies. If you have completed graduate coursework abroad and would like to be considered for transfer credit, please request a Course-by-Course evaluation report. An official report should be sent to:
