International Students


The Department of Political Science welcomes students from all around the world. Our successful graduate alumni include students from China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Korea, Kuwait, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania, Spain, Sri Lanka, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and other countries. Many of these students have gone on to complete Ph.D.s in leading political science departments. As a privately-funded university, our tuition costs and most financial aid opportunities are not restricted by residence or citizenship.


International applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit TOEFL scores. While the Department has some flexibility, we generally expect scores of 100 or better in the internet-based format.
