At Boise State, you are considered a graduate applicant if you are applying to a Master’s or Doctoral degree program. When applying to the university, you must submit the following items in order to have your application reviewed:
- Online application
- $95 application fee (non-refundable)
- Official transcripts or marksheets from all post-secondary institutions attended, as well as proof of any degrees earned
- Proof of English proficiency
- Photocopy of your passport name page
Once we have received all required items, the International Admissions Office will forward your application materials to your academic department for review. Please note that many graduate programs require additional application materials such as GRE results, letters of recommendation, and statements of purpose. Please verify your application requirements with your graduate program.
Timelines for application review vary and we are unable to advise on when you should expect to receive your decision. We advise all international graduate students to begin the process as early as possible to allow plenty of time for the visa application process.
If you are accepted to Boise State and plan to study on an F-1 student visa, you will need to submit a Financial Documentation Form and proof of sufficient funds in order to begin the process of applying for your student visa.
If you are currently studying in the U.S. on an F-1 Student Visa, you will also submit copies of your current I-20, visa, and I-94 after being accepted to Boise State. Additionally, you will need to contact your current institution to request transfer of your SEVIS record.
