How we process international students would depend on the program of study you are interested in. However, most programs require a few similar components.
A foreign transcript evaluation would be required for any education completed at a university or college outside the US. ECE (www.ece.org) and World Education Services (www.wes.org) are approved companies for transcript evaluation.
Most programs also have a TOEFL requirement (see SAHP’s TOEFL policy below)
All applicants seeking admission to the School of Allied Health Professions at UNMC must demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak and understand the English language. Applicants for whom English is not their native language may demonstrate proficiency by: 1) providing evidence of a bachelor’s or advanced degree from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States or from a university where English is the primary language of instruction**, or 2) providing a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 600 (paper-based test), 250 (computer-based test), or 100 (internet-based test).
