For international applicants


Winter break is December 24 through January 4

University offices will be closed but our Application for Graduate Admission will still be open.

If you apply during the break we'll contact you with additional details in early January. You may receive automated app-related messages before then. You'll gain access to GAMES, if applicable, after your application has been processed.

International students comprise a significant portion of our applicants and our graduate student body. At the Fall 2013 census, international students representing 108 countries made up 23% of our total graduate enrollment.

While many aspects of the application process are the same for all students, applicants from outside the U.S. have a few additional application requirements. Our international applicants come from a wide variety of linguistic and educational backgrounds and are affected by U.S. immigration regulations.
