International Students

Applicants who are not U.S. citizens or are not permanent residents of the U.S. are considered for admissions on the same basis as citizens or permanent residents. However, because of the different processing requirements and time/distance issues (especially for mail), applications and other materials for admission should be submitted as early as possible. Be aware that most U.S. students apply for university entrance typically a year in advance of their anticipated starting dates.
