International Students

All graduate admission instructions are applicable to international students, along with these additional requirements:

  • Non-U.S. credentials must be evaluated by an authorized agency.
  • TOEFL* (minimum score 79) or IELTS (minimum score 6.5) for non-U.S. citizens/permanent residents whose previous education was not in English.
  • Authorized English translations of non-English transcripts and recommendations, along with copies in the native language, if not provided with the credential evaluation.

International applicants should allow at least six months for completion of the application process.

International students are not eligible to receive U.S.-government issued financial aid, however, they are welcome to apply for scholarships and loans from outside sources. In order to get a student visa, international students will be required to submit a financial statement showing sufficient funds for living and studying here.

Please see the CCNY Admissions International Applicants page and CUNY International Students Financial Resources page for more details.
