While Carroll University welcomes students from all over the world into all of our academic programs, students studying on F-1 visas are required to engage in full-time study. Admission of students requiring F-1 visas are limited to the following programs:
Admissions criteria and decisions for graduate programs are program-specific and are determined by the academic departments. Please click on the program for specific criteria. In addition to the program-specific criteria, all prospective international graduate students will be required to submit the following:
Official transcripts of all post-secondary (undergraduate and graduate) work must be provided. If post-secondary academic work is from outside the USA, an official course by course evaluation report from WES (World Education Services) or ECE (Educational Credential Evaluators) is required.
Proof of English Proficiency
All international applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency. Students who are unable to fulfill the English proficiency requirement may receive conditional admission and start their studies in Carroll University's Intensive English Language program.
Proof of Financial Support
Though proof of financial support is not required at the application stage, it is required before the I-20 document may be issued for the F-1 student visa appointment. Therefore, to expedite the process, prospective students are encouraged to submit proof of financial support with other application materials.
Please refer to the Graduate Cost of Attendance information for your program of study to estimate the amount of financial support you will need to provide.
