In order to be fully considered for Fall GTA positions and tuition waivers please turn in all application materials by February 1.

As a reminder, beginning with the fall 2013 application cycle, Enrollment Services will no longer require graduate applicants to provide an external evaluation of their international documents.  All international transcripts will now be evaluated internally.  Students with international coursework will need to have their school send Graduate Admissions one official original-language record of  all academic coursework and proof of degree.  For each document, a certified literal English translation must also be provided.  The translation may come directly from the school itself or from a professional, certified translator.  The translation must contain all information shown on the original-language documents.  Country-specific guidelines are now posted on the Graduate Admissions website.
