How to Apply For Graduate Admission as an International Applicant
International students have additional requirements to complete the application process. Advanced planning is necessary to gather translated academic records, degree certificates, financial sponsorship documents, and to obtain a student visa. The Graduate School is ready to assist you throughout this process. All international applications are submitted using an online format. Application information and instructions are at: www.brockport.edu/graduate/applynow.
In addition to completing the graduate application process, the following items are required of all international applicants:
- Official or true certified copies of your post-secondary academic records (transcripts, examination scores, mark sheets, etc.) in both English and the original language.
- Official or true certified copies of your diploma, degree, or certification, in both English and the original language.
- International applicants whose native language is not English must submit official or true certified copies of scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL; College code 2537) or the IELTS. A minimum score of 550 on the paper-version, a minimum score of 213 on the computerized version or a minimum score of 79-80 on the TOEFL iBT version is required. The IELTS minimum score is 6.5.
- An original bank statement in the student's name or that of the student's sponsor showing a current balance of at least the total cost of attendance (in US dollars- $33,643), that will be put toward the student's educational expenses. The bank statement must be issued in the last six months. If the student has a sponsor, a letter, signed and dated by the sponsor, is required. Photocopies will not be accepted.
