How To Apply

International Admission Process

Step 1: Which type of international student are you?

Determine what kind of applicant you are by reading the definitions below:

Undergraduate "First-Year" Applicant

Click here if you are a student who is entering the University directly after high school. A first year may have AP or IB credits.

Graduate Applicant

Click here if you are a student who has or will have a bachelor's or master's degree prior to matriculation at MCPHS University.

Postbaccalaureate & Certificate Applicant

Click here if you are a student with a previously earned baccalaureate degree who is seeking a bachelor's degree or certificate in a new discipline.

Transfer Applicant

Click here if you are a student who has taken or will have taken at least twelve credits at another college or university prior to matriculation at MCPHS University.

Step 2: Follow the Application Checklist

First-year applicants should review the Undergraduate Application Checklist. Transfer, postbaccalaureate, and graduate applicants should visit the requirements for their programs of interest. Please plan sufficient time for language preparation, test score delivery, transcript evaluation, student visa application, flight reservation, and housing searches.

Step 3: Wait for Your Acceptance

MCPHS University will provide an application status update within three weeks of receiving all of your required materials. For first-year applicants, the Boston campus has rolling admission with priority filing dates of November 15 (Early Action) and a priority filing date of February 1 (Regular Decision).

Transfer, postbaccalaureate, and graduate application deadlines are available on the program pages. Applications will be accepted and reviewed after these preferred dates if seats are still available in our class. Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Master of Physician Assistant Studies will not continue to accept applications after the posted deadline.

Step 4: Confirm/Accept the Offer of Admission

Confirm your enrollment through our online Deposit Gateway system. A link to the Deposit Gateway will be provided with your acceptance package.

Step 5: Reply to Immigration Services

Immigration Services will contact you by e-mail regarding required documents for your Student Visa (I-20 form). MCPHS University does not collect these documents prior to making an admission decision.

Step 6: Start Making Plans

After you receive your I-20 form for your student visa application, make the visa interview appointment with the U.S. Embassy. After you obtain the visa, you should begin to make housing, travel, and health insurance arrangements.

Step 7: Prepare for Orientation

MCPHS University will send orientation and course schedule information by email.
