International Student Requirements

In addition to meeting requirements for admission into the Translational Biomedical Research Management M.S. degree program, international students must meet the following:

Standardized Tests

A minimum 550 TOEFL score (80 for TOEFL iBT) is required for international candidates that are not natives of English-speaking countries. Applicants who require a TOEFL score are strongly encouraged to take a communication course in the U.S., either interpersonal communication or public speaking.

International Coursework

Naturalized U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or holders of international visas who complete pre-requisite courses and/or hold the equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree from outside the U.S. must provide an official international transcript and degree evaluation by World Education Services (WES). To expedite the application review process, unofficial WES evaluations may be used at the time of the initial application. However, if accepted into the master’s program, an official evaluation will be required before matriculation.
