International Applicants

Requirements for international applicants are listed briefly below. For more information, please refer to the Graduate College website or the International Student Programs and Services website.

U.S.-Equivalent Bachelor's Degree

Generally, a four-year, first-university degree can be considered comparable to a U.S. bachelor's degree, provided that it was earned at an institution officially recognized by the ministry of education as a university-level academic institution in that country. The comparability of international coursework and degrees will be determined solely by the Graduate College.


Test of English as a Foreign Language

  • International applicants must have a TOEFL score of at least 100 (internet-based test).
  • Test scores must not be older than two years before the start of the program they are applying to.

Please refer to the Graduate College's Proficiency in English requirements for further information.


Financial Guarantee

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services requires international students to have a financial guarantee during their tenure at the University of Arizona.
