Admission Requirement(s): While a bachelor's degree is required for admission, your degree can be in any discipline. If you earned a 3.0 GPA for the last two years of undergraduate study, you do not need to submit GRE or GMAT scores. For those with a GPA below a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, GRE test scores are required. However, if an applicant has a JD, MD, or a PhD degree, they would be exempt from the GRE requirement. In addition to the online application, admission requirements include:

  • Three letters of reference
  • A resumé
  • A personal statement
International applicants whose native language is not English must submit evidence of having passed the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with the following scores:
  • 620 or higher (or 260 or higher for the computer-administered version)
  • 104 or higher (at least a 25 in each section) for the TOEFL iBT test
  • Note: Our School's Institution code is 1836.

    The IELTS test also is accepted with a minimum score of 7 in each section. The University's Department of Linguistics serves as a resource for currently enrolled Illinois graduate students who wish to improve English-language proficiency.
