International/Permanent Resident Students

In addition to admission criteria, students who are not United States citizens must submit documents verifying visa or permanent resident status. Permanent resident applicants are required to submit official transcripts or certifying credentials verifying secondary and any college studies.  

  • All transcripts must be submitted in English and credentialed for course equivalency. 
  • Evaluation of credentials may be obtained from the Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc., World Education  Services (WES), and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. 
  • Applicants for whom English is a learned language must take the TOEFL English proficiency exam and score 550  BPT, or 79 iBT or better. Exemptions for the English proficiency requirement are granted for non-native speakers  who have received a high school diploma or more advanced degree either from an accredited U.S. institution or  from an institution outside the U.S. at which English is the official language of instruction.
