International Students

The Master of Arts in Conflict Analysis and Dispute Resolution welcomes applicants from international students who can demonstrate graduate ability and proficiency in the English language may be offered admission.

Admissions and Application

The international student application process requires additional time to complete, so we prefer to have all forms and documents in the Admissions office by March 1 for fall (September) and October 1 for spring (end of January). We will, however, continue to admit international students as long as class space is available.  Graduate students (Master's Degree) are not eligible for on-campus housing.

Admission Requirements for International Students

To be considered for admission to the University, you must submit the following:
  1. An "Application for Admission to Salisbury University" and a $65.00 (in U.S. dollars) application fee. Send a credit card number, check or money order (do not send cash) payable to: Salisbury University.
  2. A professional course-by-course evaluation of all foreign academic transcript(s) is required. This professional evaluation will determine your academic level within the American system of education.  The prospective student will be required to pay the cost associated with obtaining the evaluation.

However, it has been the experience of the Office of Admissions that the university generally honors the assessment of credit to be awarded by these services.
