Apply to graduate school
The application standards for international students are the same as for domestic students, with the exception of submitting proof of English proficiency (for students whose native language is not English). After admission, international students are also required to obtain a U.S. visa, which includes submitting a graduate financial guarantee.
All international transcripts must be submitted in the original language accompanied by an official English translation. Translations must be literal, complete versions of the originals and must be translated by a university, government official or official translation service. You may not complete your own translation.
Photocopies and notarized transcripts are not acceptable.

When you complete your application for admission, you will be asked to submit your payment for the application. ASU accepts Visa or Mastercard. The graduate application fee covers the administrative cost of processing your application. It is not refundable under any circumstance, regardless of the outcome, the date of filing, time of review, or if for whatever the reason the application is withdrawn, or you are unable to enroll for a class.
Submit any additional materials
