International Application

Any applicant who is a non-U.S. citizen wishing to attend the Graduate School of the University of Charleston, S.C. as a degree- or non-degree seeking student is considered an international applicant.

All international applicants are required to have any transcripts from non-U.S. institutions evaluated by a credentialing service.  All applications and fees must be submitted online through our secure site, and all remaining requirements can be submitted directly to the Graduate School. 

Visa Information

Anyone who already has a US visa (H-type or J-type), or a Permanent Residency Card, must submit copies of these visa documents to the Graduate School as part of the application process. If an international applicant is seeking a student visa (F-1), the process for applying for this status will be handled by the Center for International Education. For more information about the F-1 student visa process, please visit the Center for International Education's website.

Application Deadlines for International Applicants

It is important to note that if your program's deadline is prior to the international deadline, you should have your materials in by the earlier deadline.

Fall: March 1
Spring: August 1
Summer: January 1

English Language Proficiency

All applicants whose primary language is not English must submit passing scores from the TOEFL or IELTS.

The minimum required total score for admission varies from program to program and international applicants should contact the program director or refer to the Graduate Catalog to find out specific minimum scores.

Applicants who have an undergraduate degree from an accredited US institution are eligible to waive the TOEFL/IELTS requirement.  Program directors may also petition the Graduate School to waive this requirement on an individual basis.
