International Students

Graduates of foreign colleges or universities who have completed an academic program equivalent to an American bachelor's degree are eligible to apply for admission. International applicants are required to have their foreign transcripts translated into English by a certified foreign credential translation service (ex. WES, ECE, FIS). Applicants should request that these translated documents be sent directly to Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai along with official original transcripts from their institution. Please contact the program administration should you have any questions. Applicants are required to submit with their application official certified transcript(s) in English and may be requested to use an academic credential service such as the WES to review international transcripts and prepare an evaluation report. In addition, the TOEFL is required of all applicants (1) whose native language is not English and/or (2) whose education was not conducted in English. A computer test score of 250 or higher is expected. Applicants who received their first university degree in an English-speaking country may request an exemption from TOEFL.

Arrangements to take the TOEFL should be made in writing directly to TOEFL, Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151, USA, or to their web site at or faxed to 609.771.7500. We must have test results in order to make a decision on your application.

All international students must contact the International Personnel Office after they have been accepted in the program to get information on getting appropriate visa. The office is located at 320 East 94th Street, 5th floor, between 1st and 2nd Avenue, New York, NY. They can be reached at 212-731-7744.
