International Applicant Requirements

In addition to the standard application requirements, international applicants need to submit the following credentials.

  1. Transcripts or marksheets and degree certificates or diplomas in your original language are required. You’ll also need translations of these academic documents by an appropriate university or government official. You may submit photocopies for the admissions process, but should submit original documents if youre accepted and choose to attend.
  2. Evaluation: The department encourages applicants who have attended international postsecondary institutions to have their credentials evaluated by a NACES-accredited agency and submit a course-by-course evaluation. This will speed up the admissions process.
  3. TOEFL or the academic version of the IELTS exam: The minimum score for the College of Engineering is 79 iBT or 6.5 IELTS. These scores must be submitted directly from the testing agency. Students who have taken the IELTS may submit a photocopy of their score results.
