These are general minimum requirements for international admission to the Graduate College.  Requirements of the academic subprogram offering your degree may be higher.

Minimum requirements include:

  • A U.S. bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college of university, or an equivalent degree from another country as determined by the Office of Admissions.
  • A minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00/4.00, or the foreign equivalent as determined by the Office of Admissions.
  • English Proficiency Requirements

English Proficiency Waiver

Automatic waivers are granted for persons who have completed a bachelor's degree (or higher) at an accredited university in the United States, or any of the countries listed on the Graduate College Admissions website.


Application Fee Waiver for International Students

Based on UI Graduate College policy, international students are not eligible for admission fee waivers. However, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Immunology does reimburse application fees, including international fees, for those who are invited to participate in and complete an official admissions interview for our Program. Offers for interviews will not be made until after December 1st and review of all complete submitted applications.
