    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    • $100 Application Fee (non-refundable), payable online by credit card.

    Your GMAT score is one part of your completed application and the admissions committee reviews the score in combination with your other materials. The admission committee looks for a minimum score of 550. However, applications will still be reviewed if your scores are below this point. 

    If you are unable to provide evaluated transcripts from one of these organizations, you must provide us with official copies of your transcripts and proof of degree conferral in both English and your native language. These documents must be issued directly by your University.

    • 3 Letters of Recommendation from current or former employers or professors. These should be submitted electronically through Apply Yourself.
    • Proof of satisfactory completion (grade of "C" or better) of a three credit hour calculus course. A request for waiver from the calculus course requirement will be considered based on the student's undergraduate major, business experience and career aspirations.
    • Applicants whose undergraduate education was conducted in a language other than English must also submit one of the following:
      • A TOEFL internet-based score of 85 or above
      • An IELTS test with an overall score of 6.5 or above, with no sub-scores below 6.0
