Information for Permanent Residents and International Applicants

At this time, our programs are open to United States Citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents (Green Card holders), and individuals who hold an H1-B Visa. In addition to required application/admission documents, the following materials must also be submitted:

  • Lawful Permanent Residents: Submit a copy of your Resident Alien Card (green card).
  • International Applicants (H1-B Status): Submit proof of current visa status.
  • The TOEFL or IELTS is required if an applicant's native language is not English or if the applicant does not hold a bachelor's or master's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. However, students may apply without the TOEFL or IELTS GRE and be considered for provisional admission. While there is no guarantee that provisional admission will be granted, if it is approved, take the TOEFL or IELTS right away. It typically takes 10-15 business days for scores to be sent after they are requested, and an additional two weeks for processing after receipt in the Office of Graduate Studies. You must take the test in time for your results to arrive and be processed in the Office of Graduate Studies before completion of the second course. Those wishing to pursue a waiver of this requirement should contact the graduate advisor.
