How are the application process and minimum requirements different for international applicants?
International students must apply through International Admissions. Be sure to consult with International Admissions on your application process and requirements. The minimum requirements for International applicants are the same as domestic students, except that international students with degrees from universities where English was not the primary language of instruction must take and receive a passing score on the TOEFL. Please check with International Admissions if you have questions about the TOEFL or about waivers for the TOEFL.
How do I know if my degree is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree?
Please check with International Admissions on bachelor degree equivalencies. In general, a useful resource for students is EducationUSA and also Oregon State University’s Graduate School country requirements website. Please note the Graduate School requirements are NOT the same as the post-baccalaureate requirements, but the website can be a useful reference guide when looking at bachelor equivalencies.
I’m currently on a visa in the U.S. Will attending this program affect my visa?
Yes, it could affect your visa. For specific visa questions, please contact Office of International Services.
