Admission, Expenses & Financial Aid

Admission

For admissions information/application please visit the international undergraduate admissions, graduate admissions or English Language Center for detailed admissions requirements.

As part of the admission process, international students are required to provide financial documentation which verifies that they can afford, either individually or through the help of a sponsor, the cost of tuition, fees, and living expenses for their academic programs.
