Credentials and Translation

Applicants to a graduate program must have earned at least the equivalent of a U.S. four-year bachelor’s degree beyond the 12th grade of secondary or high school (most three-year bachelor’s degrees are not acceptable) from an institution recognized by that country’s Ministry of Education. An overall grade point average of 3.0 (based on 4.0 scale) or better is expected.

Send all transcripts or mark sheets as well as diplomas and/or degree certificates directly to UT Dallas from the issuing institution. UT Dallas evaluates your foreign credentials using its own established policies and standards. UT Dallas will deny you admission or transfer credit if your credentials are deemed unacceptable.

Please submit all documents in their original language along with certified English translations. The academic institution or government agency must perform the translation services.
