Additional Admission Requirements for International Students

In addition to meeting the general admission requirements and any requirement specific to their program, all international students must do the following.

International Credential Evaluation. All applicants who hold degrees or have earned credits from non-U.S. institutions must have their academic records evaluated by World Education Services (WES) before they can be considered for graduate or special student status, or admission to a degree or certificate program.

Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals requires the International Credential Advantage Package (WES ICAP), which provides delivery of your verified academic transcripts along with your credential evaluation reports.

A minimum score of 600 (paper-based), 250 (computer-based), or 100 (web-based) is required on the TOEFL. For the IELTS, an overall band score of at least 7.0 is required. The admissions office requires official copies of all results.

*Applicants who would like to request a waiver from this process (i.e., international students whose primary language is English, international students who have previously earned a degree from a college or university where English is the primary language of instruction, or international students who have previously graduated from a U.S. college or university) can do so by submitting the TOEFL Waiver Request Form.

Student Visas

Those holding student visas granted by other universities are not allowed to register for our courses, and cannot be accepted as degree candidates or Special Students. For additional visa information, please contact the Office of International Services.
