International Applicants

We strongly encourage international students to start the online application process as soon as possible due to the extra time and paperwork involved in managing the student visa process. Admissions for the Public Health & Professional Degree Programs is on a rolling basis and applications are reviewed as they are received.

However, to prevent visa delays and to ensure you can begin your program during your desired semester, we strongly encourage international students to submit all application documents a minimum of two months prior to the beginning of the semester.

Information on arriving, VISA and frequently asked questions is available through our International Affairs Office.

Please note, graduates of foreign medical schools will not be considered for the Physician Assistant program.

To prevent visa delays and to ensure you can begin your program during your desired semester, we strongly encourage international students to submit all application documents a minimum of two months prior to the beginning of the semester.

Scanned copies of ALL undergraduate and graduate study transcripts (e.g., EMT courses, study abroad, summer courses, post-bacc.) are required and should be appended to your online application in “Step 3: Documents/Essays.”  Please note that we can also accept the official copies sent from your academic institution.  However, the processing and review of your application may take place in a timelier manner if scanned copies are appended.


Students must also submit an evaluation of coursework done by an organization such as WES or CED.  Evaluations may be sent to:
