International Admissions

To apply for admission to the Heller School, we encourage you to first carefully review all Application Requirements, as well as individual Program Application Requirements. In addition to the general admission requirements, international applicants should also review the following items before applying to the Heller School:

Application Tips for International Students:

  • Familiarize yourself with our Application Deadlines. We encourage you to apply as early as possible to ensure that you are considered for scholarship support and have sufficient time to apply for a visa.
  • Research and apply to external funding sources. We highly recommend connecting with your local EducationUSA advising center, as they are an excellent source for learning about external scholarship opportunities.
  • Take standardized tests by December 1st to ensure that scores reach the Heller Admissions Office before the application deadline.
  • Your Statement of Purpose is a critical component of your application. A typical Statement of Purpose is usually between 2-3 pages in length, double-spaced. Based on your professional background and interests, tell us why you would make a good candidate for the Heller School and for your specific program of interest. Be sure to highlight your career goals and how your time at the Heller School would help you achieve those goals.
