International applicants must include the following items in addition to those listed above:
Official transcript translation
If transcripts are in a language other than English, ensure official copies include a certified translation into English.
Official test scores
Colorado State University requires that proficiency in English language be demonstrated either by the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE academic tests prior to admission. Please submit one of the official scores from the list below. Tests must be taken within two years prior to admission and submitted directly from the Educational Testing Service (select institution code: 4075).
- The minimum TOEFL score for admission without condition is 550 (paper-based), or 80 (internet-based).
- The minimum IELTS score for admission without condition is 6.5.
- The minimum PTE Academic score for admission without condition is 62.
It generally takes 3-6 weeks for ETS to send the scores to CSU, so allow plenty of time.
Generally, applicants may be exempted from the TOEFL or IELTS requirement if the official language of your country is English or if you have recently earned a degree at an American university. If you have questions about whether you qualify for this exemption, contact the Graduate School.
