Master’s Degree Program Admissions Policy

Effective Fall 2015

Students applying for admission into ITU master’s degree programs are expected to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to succeed in a rigorous graduate educational environment. As such, successful applicants who are admitted to the University should have earned (the equivalent of) a US bachelor’s degree with a cumulative 2.75 GPA or above, or (the equivalent of) a US master’s degree with a cumulative 3.0 GPA or above. Degrees earned in the United States must be from a regionally accredited US institution. In some cases, ITU may also consider other evidence of readiness for academic studies at the graduate level, including: outstanding undergraduate work in the major, completion of graduate-level coursework at a 3.0 GPA or above, post-baccalaureate studies, and professional certifications.

Given the diversity of grading scales and accreditation standards worldwide, ITU requires that any foreign credentials (i.e. undergraduate/graduate diploma and transcript) be evaluated by an approved third-party evaluation service. The University will only accept foreign credentials that are deemed by the approved service provider as equivalent to a US bachelor’s or master’s degree. International applicants will also need to provide proof of English proficiency (see ITU’s English Proficiency policy).

Master’s Level Admissions Application Requirements

All ITU applications must include:

  • A completed new student application.
  • Sealed official transcripts from all universities attended. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the institution or through an official U.S. e-Transcript provider. International applicants only: Foreign credential evaluations for all transcripts must be submitted. Please see for a list of approved foreign credential evaluation services.
  • Grade point average (GPA) requirements: A cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0, or a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.75.
  • Statement of Purpose – an essay describing your personal and professional goals and reasons for obtaining your graduate degree. Word count must not exceed 750 words
  • Resumé – Must not exceed two (2) pages.

Additional Requirements for International Applicants

  • Foreign credential evaluation for any non-US degrees.for any non-US degrees and foreign credit hours transferred to a US undergraduate or graduate degree. ITU will accept a course-by-course evaluation completed by one of our approved credential evaluation service providers:
  • Proof of English proficiency. Students may demonstrate English proficiency through one of the following ways:
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination. ITU looks for a score of 72 or better for the internet-based test (ibt).
    • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination. ITU looks for a band score of 6.0 or better for the academic module.
    • Accredited bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited US institution or from a native English-speaking country.
    • Evidence that the applicant’s first language is English. Applicant should submit documentation that s/he was schooled in a country where English is the official language and language of instruction.
    • Transcript demonstrating the completion of an accredited ESL program in the US, or in a non-US Anglophone country, with a proficiency level equivalent to a B2 or above, according to the Common European Framework (CEFR).
