Entry requirements

To successfully gain admission to a US degree or pathway program, students must meet minimum academic and English level entry requirements.

Academic qualifications

You need good grades in previous academic study – high school diploma or undergraduate degree – that are equivalent to the minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) for entry to your chosen degree. You may have the option to join an undergraduate pathway program if your GPA does not qualify you for entry directly to a bachelor’s degree.

English language level

With advanced English proficiency, you may be able to start a bachelor’s or master’s degree immediately. You can join a pathway or intensive English program if your English level does not yet meet the requirements for a degree. Generally, we accept scores from any of the following English language exams:

  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) iBT
  • Kaplan iBT
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE)

Bachelor's degree admission

  • A high school diploma or equivalent
  • Minimum GPA 2.50 to 3.60 (or equivalent)
  • Minimum TOEFL 61 to 100 (or equivalent)

Undergraduate transfer admission

  • Minimum 24 and maximum 96 transferable undergraduate university credits
  • Minimum GPA 2.25 to 3.00 (or equivalent)
  • Minimum TOEFL 61 to 100 (or equivalent)

Undergraduate pathway programs

  • English language: minimum TOEFL 55 to 79 (or equivalent)

  • Minimum TOEFL 55 to 99 (or equivalent)

Supporting documents

For a completed US university application, you usually need to submit the following documents:

  • ‭Proof of English Language Proficiency – this can be a TOEFL®, IELTS, Pearson PTE, Kaplan iBT or KITE result, or completion of a previous degree taught in English
  • Academic transcripts from previous study (including grade scale and English translation if originals are in another language)
  • Personal statement
  • Reference letters
  • Curriculum vitae (CV)/résumé (master’s applicants only)
  • Passport copy
  • Evidence of finances to cover your study costs

Previous classes or degrees

  • Some US bachelor’s degrees require you to complete specific classes – called “pre-requisites” – and to submit the grades you earned, before you can start the program.
  • Master’s programs may require that you studied a specific degree subject (or “major”) during your undergraduate studies.

Admission test scores

  • Some bachelor’s degree programs encourage applicants to submit standardized admission test scores (SAT or ACT) to be considered for tuition scholarships, but these are not required for international students.
  • Many master’s degree programs require students to submit graduate admission test scores (such as the GMAT or GRE) before their application is considered.
