International Students

Can international online students get OPT/CPT after they graduate from this program?

No. However, this is available with our on-campus MCIT program.

What requirements do international students need to meet?

In addition to the standard requirements for admission, you’ll need to provide English-language transcripts from every institution where you’ve earned course credit. If English is not your native language, you’ll also need to submit official TOEFL scores. See Application Process for details.

Can I get a student visa through this program?

No, we cannot sponsor visas for students because the entire program is online.

Do I have to submit official transcripts?

You do not need to submit official transcripts with your application. However, if you attended an international university, consider using a service such as Certifile or WES as this makes international documentation easier for our admissions team to evaluate. 

Every for-credit course that you have taken needs to be represented on a transcript that includes all of the following: course name, credits received, and grade. If you submit a transcript that includes transfer credits without the listed grades earned, such as T for Transfer, you will also need to submit the transcript from the original institution that contains the actual grades received.

If you are accepted into the program, you’ll be required to submit your official transcripts before matriculation.

What are the requirements for English proficiency?

All international applicants, non-US Citizens, and non-US Permanent Resident applicants for whom English is not the native language must submit official scores for the Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) will not be accepted in place of the TOEFL.

This requirement can be waived if the candidate has completed a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree where the medium of instruction at the institution is English. The degree must be completed before matriculation into the MCIT Online program. Applicants are required to submit documentation of the medium of instruction along with the waiver. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for a waiver upon submission of their application.
