Graduate Application Process

First, review our program-specific application requirements. Because the application requirements differ from graduate program to graduate program, you will want to become familiar with the requirements for your graduate program.

Next, review our list of graduate programs to verify that the program you intend to pursue is suitable for an international student in F or J status.

Finally, note that Salem State does not offer conditional admission for international graduate applicants, so all required application documents (such as evaluated transcripts or standardized tests) must be submitted in order for your application to be considered.

Additional Requirements for International Graduate Students

If your degree was completed outside of the US, you must submit a transcript evaluation, even if your transcript is in English. Please request a detailed, course-by-course evaluation, that will show courses, grades, academic degrees, and grade point average.

Graduate admissions accepts transcript evaluations from one of these four approved agencies: Center for Educational Documentation, World Education Services, Inc.North American Educational Group, or Educational Credential Evaluators.
