The admissions process is the same for international and domestic students.

During the application process, most of our international applicants visit our campus for their required interview and tour. However, if a visit to campus is not possible, it is possible that a member of our Admission Team can interview in your home area. Skype Interviews are a third possible option for completing your interview requirement. We offer Skype interviews on specific dates.
