    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    Rutgers School of Public Health realizes that many students need financial aid to help them complete their education. Financial aid is any grant, scholarship, loan or paid employment offered for the express purpose of helping a student meet educationally-related expenses.

    Such aid is usually provided by or through federal and state agencies, foundations, corporations and/or the University. Financial aid is awarded based on financial need, which is the difference between the cost of attending school and the students ability to contribute to his or her education, as determined on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once a student has matriculated, financial aid funding is also contingent on the student making satisfactory academic progress.


    The Rutgers School of Public Health is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health. All accredited schools undergo periodic full evaluations, including preparing a self-study document and hosting a team of qualified peer reviewers to assess the validity of the self-study document during an on-site visit.
