Submit a Graduate Application for Admission, which includes a non-refundable $65 application fee.
An undergraduate degree (BA, BS, or the equivalent) from a regionally accredited institution is a prerequisite for this program. We require official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate academic institutions attended, regardless of whether or not you received a degree. This includes transfer credits from institutions where you have earned 7 or more units.
US and Canadian transcripts, if not submitted electronically, must arrive in their official, sealed envelopes.
All transcripts from schools outside the United States and Canada must be sent, at the applicant's expense, to World Education Services (WES) foreign credential evaluation service or through any current member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). A course-by-course report* is required for all programs and will be used in lieu of the CIIS application requirement for original transcripts. CIIS accepts the WES 'Basic' report, but applicants may wish to complete the 'ICAP'.
A minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher in previous coursework is required. However, a GPA below 3.0 does not automatically disqualify an applicant and CIIS will consider a prospective student whose GPA is between 2.0 and 3.0. These individuals are required to submit a GPA Statement and are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions to discuss their options.
