INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS:

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for those whom English is not the native language.
Minimum score for paper test = 600; computer test = 250; internet test = 100.

Or, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test can be taken. An overall score of 7.0 is required with minimum sub scores per section also being 7.0.

If you attended a non-U.S. or non-Canadian college, university, or graduate school, a course-by-course evaluation of your international college and university transcripts is required. Several third-party organizations provide this service to international students, but we prefer WES (World Education Services). The credentials evaluation must be received in our Admissions office by the application deadline to ensure consideration of your application.

Transfer of Credits

Post-baccalaureate work at the graduate level in psychology taken at an accredited university may be evaluated for transfer. An "A" grade must have been achieved and the course instructor and the Director of Academics must determine that the content of the course (based on syllabus documentation) was appropriate through review of the Transfer of Credit Application. A maximum of 21 credits may be transferred from other schools provided these were earned after award of a bachelor's degree from an accredited program and within the four years immediately preceding admission to the school. Practicum and internship credits are not transferable.
