Welcome to the International Page for Graduate programs at Saint Louis University. In addition to the Application Requirements to our programs, these items are needed from international applicants:
- Only original, official transcripts or marksheets are acceptable. Those documents must bear the imprinted seal of the institution and the signature of the person who is responsible for the authenticity. Photostat and copies of the documents will not be accepted. If only one set of the materials exists, then you should take them to a U.S. Embassy or Consulate Office, have the copies made and notarized there by the United States official who can certify that the documents are true facsimiles. International applications can obtain official translations from Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) or World Education Services (WES).
- Photostats, copies and personal reports of the GRE, and/or other test results such as the GMAT and TOEFL or IELTS scores, are also unacceptable. When you take one of these tests, you are permitted to designate several universities to receive official score reports.

Please Note: Saint Louis University is asking international applicants to submit their test scores electronically. Saint Louis University's institutional code is: 6629.
