International Student’s Application Deadline

Walsh University has a rolling admissions policy with multiple start dates throughout the year, but we recommend that international students apply as early as possible for their intended start term to allow time for arrival requirements.

International Student’s Education Level

New freshmen applicants must finish secondary school in their home country by the time of enrollment to be eligible for university. A student who has previously enrolled in more than one semester of post-secondary institution after secondary school completion is required to apply as a transfer student.  

Graduate admission requirements and deadlines differ from program to program. Please reach out to your graduate admissions counselor for more information.

International Student’s GPA Requirement

Freshmen and Transfer applicants must meet the minimum requirement of a 2.0 GPA or higher on a U.S. 4.0 GPA scale. Some special programs may have higher requirements. Check with your admissions counselor for more information.
