Admission Information for Students from Other Countries

Prospective undergraduate and graduate students living outside the United States and its possessions should contact the Office of International Student and Scholar Services at least one year before the date of desired admission for information about application to the university. Applicants will be expected to supply official original secondary and college/university transcripts from all schools attended as well as other official original documents.

All students should make arrangements to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) well in advance of their admission date. Most graduate programs also require additional materials, including letters of recommendation, writing samples, and/or GRE and GMAT scores. All students in F-1 and J-1 status have been required to purchase an inexpensive insurance policy with coverage for illness and accidents, billed to the student’s UMSL account.
