If your academic credentials are from a country other than the United States, please submit the following:
- Transcript/marksheet. An official listing of the subjects you have studied and the marks received in each class.
- Diploma. An official certificate showing the exact name of your degree and the date you received it. If your transcript clearly specifies the name of your degree and your date of graduation, then you do not need to submit a diploma. If you are currently enrolled in a degree program and your degree has not yet been awarded, please specify the month and year in which you expect to receive your degree.
- Transcript/credential evaluation. Please contact our admissions officer for approved evaluation providers, or UST makes this service available for $100. We require applicants' credentials to be at least the equivalent to a four-year bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited U.S. institution.
- English translations: For all transcripts and diplomas in a language other than English, please submit both the original documents and an English translation of them. A translation unaccompanied by the original documents from which the translation originated is not an acceptable educational credential.
- TOEFL iBT (Internet-based test). If English is not your native language, you must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and achieve a minimum score of 80, with a minimum score of 20 on each of the four sections. Test results should be sent directly to St. Thomas (code 6110). We cannot accept copies of test scores issued to students. If you have completed an undergraduate or graduate degree at a college or university in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom or Australia, you are exempt from taking the TOEFL.
