Standardized Test Scores

If you are from an English-speaking country, have your SAT or ACT scores sent to the Office of Admission directly from the College Board. Our SAT code is 2088; our ACT code is 2823. Otherwise, submit the TOEFL (www.ets.org/toefl).
Learn more about Standardized Test Score requirements on our Conditional Admission for International Students page.

Transcripts

Have your transcripts evaluated by a credential evaluation service, such as World Educational Services (http://www.wes.org/). We will accept credential evaluations from other members certified by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (http://www.naces.org/). We also accept official secondary-school transcripts that meet the following requirements: the transcript is (1) sent directly from the high school, (2) translated into English, and (3) includes an official grading scale.

Letter of Recommendation

Please ask a professor or teacher forward a letter of recommendation.

Personal Essay

Submit an essay on a topic of your choice.

Please note: Any student interested in deferring their enrollment and/or acceptance to an upcoming semester must submit the request in writing to the Director of Admission. The admissions committee will review the request and notify the student of a decision within one month of the request. A student can not defer more than two semesters, or one year, from the original acceptance.
