Official transcripts from all previous post-secondary educational institutions. This includes both complete and incomplete studies in the U.S. and non-U.S. institutions.  If the official transcript(s) are not in English, the transcripts will need to be officially translated and evaluated.

Letters of recommendation – the program requires two letters of recommendation. The Program prefers that one letter be from a supervisor and the other from a faculty member who can speak to your academic ability and academic readiness for graduate study.

International students – applicants must submit official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Test scores must be no more than two years old. Applicants must achieve a minimum of 100 out of 120 on the TOEFL iBT test (Internet).
