    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.


    program_requirements

    • The statement of purpose should offer a narrative of your accomplishments, including details of major papers and projects you completed as part of your prior studies. It should describe the anthropological questions you want to grapple with through your graduate study and research, along with the particular regions or historical periods on which you will focus (although we do understand that your plans may alter with time). And it should let us know what your future career plans are, your reasons for applying to study in this Department specifically, and aspects of your background, skills, and linguistic abilities that may aid the Admissions Committee in evaluating your aptitude for graduate study.
    • Letters of recommendation should be requested from people who know you well and can speak to the quality of your academic skills (especially in careful reading, writing, and the construction of arguments), your ability to work cooperatively with others, and your prior accomplishments.
    • The writing sample should be a major course paper or other substantial essay that showcases your ability to frame a scholarly argument, to develop it by discussing pertinent literature, and to analyze relevant primary materials. For applicants with an MA, the writing sample should be your MA thesis or equivalent.
    • The remaining application materials include the application form and fee, transcripts, and GRE scores. The GRE is required of all applicants, but no GRE subject test is required. International students from non-English-speaking countries must also provide TOEFL or IELTS scores. The Graduate School asks applicants to upload unofficial transcripts when applying; applicants who are offered admission to our graduate program will then be asked to provide official copies of all transcripts.
