For prospective graduate students seeking information about academics and the application process, you will need to visit the specific department websites and offices. Requirements, application processes and deadlines vary from department to department. Therefore, it is recommended that students seek information early in their consideration of an academic program directly from the department and program of interest. General information regarding all graduate degrees offered through Carnegie Mellon can be found in the Guide to Graduate Degrees and Programs.
Most academic departments require standardized admissions exams. These will vary depending on the program so pay special attention to application requirements for each program.
TOEFL or IELTS scores are required of all international students whose native language is not English. If your native language is not English but you attended an English-speaking institution for your undergraduate degree, please check with the department to determine if you will need to take the TOEFL or IELTS exam.
