  • International Students: $60 non-refundable application fee
  • Completed Online Application
  • One official copy of transcripts from all accredited college or university attended since completing high school.

International Students

All international (non-U.S. citizen) applicants should choose International Admissions and then Graduate Students at the beginning of the graduate application process. In addition to any application steps listed above, you will also need to prepare the following for your application:

  • Demonstration of language proficiency: TOEFL at 80 or above with minimum sub-scores of 16 listening, speaking 20, writing 20, reading 16; IELTS at 6.5 or above; UNC IEP Level 7 graduate; or petition for exemption.
  • Copy of passport bio page
  • Financial documentation: we will need to verify that you can financially cover the estimated costs (tuition, fees, room, board, insurance, books, supplies, travel) of the time you will be in the U.S. Those applying to programs that last longer than one year will only need to provide proof for the first year at the time of application.
