Diversity is a valued aspect of the Busch School of Business. We aim to provide all students with an internationally minded experience and appreciate our international students for the experiences they bring to our Washington, D.C., campus.

In addition to submitting all required items (application fee, transcripts, purpose statement, resume, references, and GRE scores), international students must also submit documentation that shows financial support for tuition and expenses for one year of study.

Applicants for whom English is a second language must demonstrate their proficiency by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Scores for all three components (listening, writing, vocabulary/comprehension) should be submitted with the other application materials. The university code for the TOEFL scores is 5104.

International applicants must complete the Request for Visa Documentation form in the Catholic University Graduate Admissions Application Packet. International students also must arrange to have their transcripts translated and credits and/or degrees certified by the World Education Service.
