Individuals with international academic credentials will need to submit additional information for their applications to be completely processed and approved. The Office of International Students, located at the University Park campus, will prompt students to submit required documentation, after the department approves admission and the Graduate School approves foreign academic credentials.
Individuals who are in the United States on a work visa can follow the application deadline dates stated on the How to Apply page.
