International Applicants

Thank you for your interest in applying to the MBA or Master of Accountancy program.

Applicants who reside in other countries, or who enrolled in college in other countries, must submit the application and required documents listed on the How to Apply pages, as well as the following supporting documents:

   A. Official Transcripts.

Applicants who attended institutions outside of the United States and their transcripts are not in English are required to have their transcripts evaluated by a NACES-approved organization. The organization will provide directly to Millsaps the following:  an official copy of your course-by-course evaluation, GPA, and verification that the international degree is equivalent to a U.S. regionally accredited institution. This documentation is required before your application can be reviewed.

   B. English Language Proficiency.

Applicants from countries other than the United States for whom English is not the first language are required to demonstrate high-level competence in the use of the English language. 

To meet the English language requirement, applicants must submit scores from one of the following tests for admission:

  1. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).  You must achieve one of the following minimum scores:  

    Combined scores will not be accepted, nor will Millsaps accept the ETS MyBestScore results. The TOEFL is administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The test cannot be more than two years old.

  2. Duolingo English Language Test. The minimum required Duolingo score is 100.

  3. IELTS.  The minimum score is 6.5.

  • 80 on an internet-based test

  • 550 on a written test

  • 220 on a computerized test

English Language Waivers

  1. International students coming to Millsaps after completing a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited American college or university may have this requirement waived if satisfactory English grades were obtained in the student’s undergraduate program.

  2. Submit a document from your undergraduate institution stating that the course of instruction was taught in English.

C.   Interview with the Director of Graduate Admissions.

Once all application materials have been received, except for the I-20 request form, please schedule an appointment with the Director of Graduate Admissions.

D.  Financial Evidence

Applicants entering from other countries must provide evidence of their ability to finance the cost of their education and living expenses prior to matriculation. Applicants may include their Millsaps scholarship as part of their financial proof.  Please complete the I-20 Immigration Document Request form to show proof of financial support. This item is required after an admission decision has been awarded.
