  • English language verification
  • Official academic transcripts/records
  • Bank statement
  • SIUE Financial Form

English Verification

All international applicants are required to take either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) to demonstrate English proficiency. Official test score reports must be sent directly from the Testing Service (ETS/IELTS) to SIUE, Office of Admissions. The institutional code for SIUE is 001759. No departmental code is needed.

  • overall band score of 6.5 or higher


The TOEFL or IELTS must be taken within two years before the term for which admission is sought. We can not process applications without an official score report from ETS or IELTS. It can take up to six weeks for score reports to arrive at SIUE, so please plan accordingly so that application deadlines are met.

The TOEFL/IELTS examination requirement will be waived under the following circumstances:

  • academic records verifying graduation from a secondary or post-secondary academic institution in the United States, Australia, Canada (except Quebec), New Zealand, or the United Kingdom.
  • academic records certifying that applicant has completed courses equivalent to both English 101 (Composition I) and English 102 (Composition II) (minimum of 6 semester hours) with grades of C or better. These courses must have been earned at a regionally accredited college or university in the United States.
  • take the SIUE-administered Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency and meet internal indicators of college entry-level competence in English. The test is administered on campus You must submit an SIUE application and pick up a referral from the Graduate Admissions office before you will be permitted to take the examination.

Academic Records

Applicants must make all appropriate arrangements for providing official academic records attesting to their secondary and post-secondary education. Applicants who have attempted at least 30 semester hours (or 45 quarter hours) of college-level transfer credit (either from the U.S. or abroad) are not required to provide secondary school records. Credentials not available in English must be submitted with an original, attested, and professionally prepared English language translation.

If you have in your possession original documents (issued to you upon graduation) you may have them attested and copied by an EducationUSA office. We will accept these verified documents as long as they are submitted in sealed, unopened envelope bearing the name and address of the verifying EducationUSA office. Applicants who are seeking university-level transfer credit for courses completed at an institution outside the United States must have their transcripts evaluated by an accredited service (ex. WES, ECE). SIUE will utilize this evaluation of credit as a guideline and SIUE reserves the right to award appropriate credit.


U.S. and Canadian Credentials

All high school and college transcripts must be mailed directly to the Office of Admissions by the registrar or principal of each school attended. Applicants who have graduated from a U.S. high school within the past five years also must provide ACT or SAT scores, except when 30 semester hours of college-level credit have been attempted since high school graduation. ACT or SAT scores posted on official high school transcripts are recognized as official.


Credentials from other Countries

Secondary and post-secondary transcripts (including certification of graduation when appropriate) must be mailed directly to the Office of Admissions by the registrar or principal for each school attended. Each transcript must bear the official signature and the school’s official seal. Each photocopy of a grade sheet or certificate submitted must bear an original certification of the registrar or principal of the school and/or the examination board stated on the original document. The certification must verify, in English, that the copy is a complete and exact duplicate of the authentic original. Notarized copies of credentials are not considered official.


Financial Verification

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville complies with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations that govern the financial eligibility of international students. Under current regulations, international students must provide evidence of sufficient financial resources to support all their living and education expenses for one academic year. Financial requirements are updated annually.

To receive financial approval for admission and a Form I-20 or DS-2019 (the forms necessary to get a student F or J visa), a student must submit a current notarized bank letter indicating in U.S. dollars that the applicant or sponsor has adequate funds immediately available. The student also must complete a Financial Form. The form must be mailed to us with an original signature to be accepted. Copies will not fulfill the requirement.

Please note: International applicants who have filed an application for United States Permanent Residency, but have not yet been granted approval, are considered international applicants but are not required to provide financial documentation. International students who are in the United States on H-1 or H-4 visa types and who plan on remaining on that same visa are not required to provide financial verification documents.


Copy of Passport Biographical Information

International applicants must submit a copy of the biographical page of their passport to verify the legal name. If the applicant does not have a passport, a copy of the birth certificate (in English) will be accepted.

New SIUE Student
Current SIUE Student



Please note: Complete the following steps AFTER you have completed the application, Step 1.

Step 2. Three Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation Worksheets

Using your own copies of your post-secondary transcripts, complete the three GPA Calculation Forms. The SIUE School of Pharmacy requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 in each of three separate GPA calculations. The cumulative GPA calculation (1) includes all undergraduate grades earned. The pre-pharmacy GPA calculation (2) includes only those courses (or equivalent courses) listed on the SIUE pre-pharmacy GPA calculation worksheet. The pre-pharmacy science and mathematics GPA (3) includes the science and mathematics courses listed on the SIUE pre-pharmacy science and mathematics worksheet. You must complete all three GPA Calculation Forms.

The GPA Calculation Forms are designed to calculate your GPA as you populate the cells. For each course you have completed, include the following:

  • the exact course title and number, the college/university where you took the course
  • the term during which you took the course (e.g. spring 2012, fall 2012)
  • the semester hours you earned for the course, and
  • and the grade you earned. Do not use (+) and (-) grades (e.g. “A-” should be listed as “A”).

If you have not completed some courses in the pre-pharmacy curriculum, list them on the form as well and indicate when you plan to take the courses, which university or college you plan to take them at, and the exact course names and numbers. Do not fill in the hours column that corresponds with the courses you have not yet completed. If you make an error as you are completing the forms do not cut and paste to correct your error. Use the backspace key to return to the cell in which you made the error and reenter the information.

If you have earned Advanced Placement or proficiency credit for a pre-pharmacy course, enter “P” in the corresponding grade cell for the course and leave the credit hours and points columns blank.
