International Graduate Student Admissions

Admission Requirements

  • Bachelor degree from an accredited U.S university. Official U.S. transcripts are required to be attached to the application.
  • If your bachelor’s degree was earned outside of the U.S., you will need to have your transcript evaluated by a credential evaluation company and sent to Utah Tech University. (World Education Services Recommended). Any credential evaluation company must be a part of NACES.

    This process can take 2-3 months; therefore, we require proof that any foreign transcripts have been submitted to a credential evaluation company 60 days prior to the program application deadline. If not provided, your application will be moved to the next application term.
