International Students

All international students must meet University Admission requirements. In addition to meeting those requirements, international students must submit a certified, translated transcript, a notarized statement of financial support or a certified government sponsored letter, and proof of English proficiency. Proof of English proficiency can be provide with one of the following:
  • Having scored at least 500 on the paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or at least 173 on the computer-based TOEFL, or at least 61 on the Internet-based TOEFL.
  • Having successfully completed a DeVry-approved intermediate English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Having successfully completed four consecutive years of secondary education or higher in which the language of instruction was English.
  • Having completed 12 semester-credit hours, with at least a C (2.00 or 70%) average, at a post-secondary institution at which English was the language of instruction.
  • Having an overall band score of at least 5.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination.
  • Having attained acceptable scores on a DeVry-administered English-language proficiency examination.

Admission requirements may differ at locations offering an ESL program.  Details are available in the English as a Second Language supplement.

The dean of academic affairs or designee determines applicants' English-language-proficiency status.
The Designated School Official (DSO) will assist international students with questions and concerns. 

Applicants cannot work off-campus legally in the US without permission from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. International Students are able to work on campus in non-Federal Work Study positions, no more than 20 hours per week, with permission from the DSO. 

Please see the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for additional information.
