    While the program name and degree name may vary by university, the curriculum will be essentially the same, and courses offered in the program will be the collaborative result of a divergent faculty from within the participating universities.

    In that this program is one of collaboration between six universities in the Midwest, courses will be offered and taught by distinguished faculty members from each of the participating universities. As such, students enrolling, for example at Kansas State University, in a KSU listed course can expect to experience having a lead instructor from another participating university, who is simultaneously teaching the course to others who have enrolled at other participating universities under a different course name as approved at that institution. In this manner, the program faculty assembled will be the most experienced and knowledgeable instructors in their areas of expertise from within the participating universities.

    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.
