Additional Requirements for International Students
For applicants whose native language is not English, the TOEFL, IELTS or PTE Academic Exam scores are required. The minimum scores for the TOEFL and IELTS are set by the Graduate School and are strictly enforced in the admissions process. Minimum scores are
- TOEFL: 79 and
- IELTS: 6.5.
International applicants who have either completed an undergraduate or graduate program in the U.S. or received a degree from an institution where the instruction was conducted in English will be eligible to apply for a TOEFL or IELTS waiver once the Graduate School has received and approved all transcripts.
- Fall: Dec. 15*
- Spring: Aug. 1*
*NOTE: These dates are official deadlines that guarantee an application will be processed in a timely manner. We also process applications received after the deadline on a rolling basis. Feel free to contact us if you are unsure about the timing.
