How to Apply

Online Information Sessions

We will be having more online information sessions in August and September. Please refer back to our site for details.

International Students

On-campus visits are a program requirement. Consider your country’s timeline for processing visas as you prepare your application to the program. We recommend international students apply for the fall or spring semesters to allow time for processing visas. Students are responsible for their own visa and travel arrangements.

International applicants must consider Evidence of English Language Proficiency. Take the TOEFL or IELTS exams early to be considered for admission.

Students with transcripts from foreign countries must submit copies of the transcript in the original language along with certified English translations, when applicable. If your academic records do not include official evidence of the award of your degree, you must also submit additional documents that verify the degree conferral. Unfortunately, we do not accept third party evaluations (e.g. WES).
