Admissions Checklist – Graduate

Our office, the International Program Center, works in conjunction with the BSU School of Graduate Studies for all international applicants who apply for admission to study in an on-campus graduate program. Our office deals specifically with the application documents needed for visa issuance.  All other aspects of the application are handled by The School of Graduate Studies.

Apply Online

Under “Citizenship” on the application’s first page, be sure to select “International Visa Holder or Seeker.” Please do not include an international telephone number, as it delays processing.
