International Applicants

In addition to the required documents of domestic students, prospective international students must provide additional information.

  • Credential Evaluation — Transcripts submitted by non-U.S. universities must also provide, in addition to their official transcript, a credential evaluation that highlights the degree equivalency and grading assessment on a 4.0 scale. The MBA program recommends World Education Services, WES.org. All evaluations must be submitted directly from the credentialing agency.
  • English Proficiency Exams — The MBA program accepts both the TOEFL and IELTS. These must be submitted directly from the testing agency. This requirement is waived for international students who attended a U.S. university or whose coursework was taught primarily in English.
