International Candidates

Prospective students who have earned a degree from an institution outside the United States must submit all official transcripts, diplomas, and marksheets to the International Education Research Foundation for a credential evaluation. Request a Detail Report, which includes a comprehensive course-by-course evaluation and calculation of a grade point average (GPA). Applications requiring a credential evaluation will not be reviewed without a credential evaluation.

International candidates must also include a TOEFL or IELTS score.
