When should I apply?

Once you have verified that you meet all the international student admission requirements, you may begin the admissions process. If you are applying to one of DeVry's degree programs prior to completing the minimum educational level for that program, you will be required to submit additional documentation upon graduation.

  • Undergraduate Degree: submit a high school or secondary school transcript upon graduation
  • Graduate Degree: submit official university transcript/mark sheets upon completion of your 4-year baccalaureate degree.

How do I apply if I will be transferring from another school in the U.S.?

Students who have already entered the United States on an I-20 and who are transferring from another school must have all the necessary documentation up-to-date and ready to submit to their DeVry International Admissions Advisor. In addition to the regular requirements and documentation necessary for enrollment at DeVry, we will also need a copy of your most recent I-20 and transcripts from the previous school.

When will I know I am accepted?

Once your application has been processed and all necessary documentation has been received and approved, you will receive the following:

  • Pre-Arrival Guide
  • Consulate Interview Packet

It is very important that your application and admissions requirements be complete and accurate when they are submitted to DeVry. An incomplete file will delay processing your application and will likely result in the postponement of your class start.

When can I start?

DeVry has multiple entry points per academic year. Contact your international admissions advisor for the start date that works best for you to achieve your educational/career goals.
