For International Students

In addition to the application requirements found on the How to Apply page, international applicants must have all official transcripts from institutions not based in the U.S. evaluated by WES or ECE, and demonstrate English proficiency if English is not their native language. International applicants who need F-1 or J-1 visa support must submit all application materials by the priority deadline to ensure necessary time for visa documents to be processed.
