The Theatre School > Admission > International Admission
Submit official transcripts, in the original language, from all high schools/secondary schools attended, for all years attended. If the official transcript is in a language other than English, you will also need to submit word-for-word English translations of all pages.
Students educated outside the U.S. for secondary school (high school) are required to submit an exam score that meets our English proficiency requirement. Students can demonstrate proof of English proficiency by submitting one of the following exams:
Note: TOEFL, IELTS Academic, and PTE Academic exam scores are valid for two years. SAT and ACT exam scores are valid for five years. Scores that are older will not be accepted.
In addition to the requirements found on the Theatre School Graduate Admissions page, the following items may also be required of international graduate applicants:
If you attended a college or university outside of the United States for your undergraduate education, you must submit official educational credentials (transcripts, mark sheets, degree certificates) and an evaluation fee directly to one of three evaluation companies. The evaluator will then provide DePaul with a general evaluation of your studies and certified copies of your international educational credentials which will be used during the admissions review. It does not matter which company you choose to use; choose only one:
DePaul will not accept evaluations from any other evaluation companies and will not accept any international educational transcripts/credentials without an evaluation from One Earth, ECE or EP. To determine what credentials you need to submit for an evaluation, please refer to the website of your chosen evaluation company.
If you are a non-native English speaker who has not completed a bachelor's or master's degree in the United States, you must submit test scores as proof of English language proficiency. Test scores are official only when sent to us directly from the testing vendor. TOEFL and IELTS scores are valid for two years.
