International Admissions Requirements

Requirements by Student Type

The international admissions process varies depending on your student type and whether you are pursuing an undergraduate degree or graduate degree.  In general, students pursuing a bachelor’s degree are classified as undergraduate. Below you will find admissions requirements explained by student type.

Please note, we consider Intensive English Program to Bachelor’s students to be undergraduate students (those in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree). Similarly, we consider Intensive English Program to Master’s applicants to be graduate students (those in pursuit of a master’s, education specialist, or doctoral degree).
