In addition to the specific admission requirements of your intended academic program, international applicants should also submit:

  • An evaluation of coursework taken outside of the United States. Applicants must have transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES) or an accredited evaluation agency. 
  • Applicants must submit a course-by-course evaluation of all transcripts and submit a copy of the sealed evaluation.

If your transcript(s) has already been evaluated by an agency other than WES, please contact 215-503-8890 or to learn more.
