Graduate Admissions Process

As an international applicant to a graduate program at Salisbury, you will go through a three-step process involving the academic department in which you have an interest, the Office of Graduate Studies, and the Center for International Education (CIE).

Role of Academic Departments

After you submit your application, application fee, and required documents, the academic department will evaluate your application and inform you if you have met admission requirements. If you are accepted, the department will forward your application to the Office of Graduate Studies.

Each department has Graduate Program Heads, Graduate Committee Chairs, and a Graduate Program Departmental Contact Person.

Role of the Office of Graduate Studies

The Office of Graduate Studies reviews your application and makes the formal admission decision.

Role of the Center for International Education (CIE)

After sending the CIE scanned images of your official financial support documents, and a copy of your passport photo page showing the legal spelling of your name, provided all requirements are met, immigration document(s) will be prepared and mailed.

The Form I-20 or DS 2019 along with a valid passport, financial documentation and receipt for payment of the SEVIS fee (if required), are needed to apply for a student visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
