Qualifications

  • Currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at another institution and in good academic standing.

  • U.S. bachelor’s degree or international equivalent.
    If your post-secondary credentials are from an institution outside the United States, the Office of Admissions requires you to submit all post-secondary credentials (undergraduate and graduate) to World Education Services, Inc. (WES), a third-party verification agency for a course-by-course evaluation for admission consideration. The Office of Admissions will use the credential evaluation provided by WES to determine if your undergraduate degree is the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree.

  • Students must be comfortable with rapid and idiomatic spoken English.
    To be considered for admission, applicants required to provide test scores must have a minimum TOEFL score of 100 (600 paper based) or receive a 7.0 or higher on the IELTS. Applicants with TOEFL scores below this program’s requirement should consider applying to the American Language Program.
