International Student Admissions

International Admissions

As per government regulations, a program must apply for approval to admit international students. Manchester University has received approval from the Department of Homeland Security to admit students from outside the U.S for the following programs:

  • Doctor of Pharmacy Program (on-campus program only)
  • Master of Science in Pharmacogenomics Program (on-campus program only)
  • Master of Athletic Training Program

Manchester University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program, the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) Second Degree Program, and the Master of Science in Nutrition and Nutrigenomics (MSNGx) Program does not have approval from Homeland Security to accept international students. Currently, international students are not eligible to apply to these Programs.


All international applicants must apply through the appropriate CAS. A completed CAS application is required to be considered for admission to all programs. Use the links below to view admission requirements, program specific prerequisites, and application deadlines.  

  • Doctor of Pharmacy Program (on-campus program only)
  • Master of Science in Pharmacogenomics Program (on-campus program only)

    Additional Requirements for International Applicants

    Applicants who completed their degree(s)/studies outside the United States will be required to submit a course-by-course foreign credit evaluation report from World Education Services (WES) for each international institution attended directly to the appropriate CAS.

    Verified copies of all collegiate transcripts:

    • Step 1: Enter all institutions attended, domestic and international, in CAS application.
    • Step 2: Please follow the steps outlined within the CAS application process to order this evaluation. 
    • Information about WES can be found at Students are responsible for payment of fees to WES (not Manchester University) for this service.

    English Proficiency:
    International applicants must be able to read, speak, write and comprehend rapid idiomatic English. We do not offer ESL instruction. Therefore, the TOEFL or IELTS exam is required of all students whose language of instruction is not English. The following are minimum guidelines used to determine sufficient test scores for admission:

    TOEFL paper-based test = 550
    TOEFL iBT = 79
    IELTS = 6.5

    Testing locations and dates for these exams may be found on their web sites:


    Test results must be entered into your CAS application and sent to the appropriate CAS.

    NOTE: Applicants who were instructed in English may still be asked to submit a TOEFL or IELTS exam result in order to assess English proficiency. 

    Evidence of financial support:
    Students must be able to show their ability to pay for their program studies in the United States. Students may self-fund their education or obtain a financial sponsor. Students with a financial sponsor must complete the Affidavit of Financial Support and return the document signed by the student’s sponsor to the Office of Graduate Admissions with proof of adequate funds to support you for at least one year. Such proof includes bank statements, employer testimony of salary, or government support letters.
