International Application & Admission Process

International student applicants follow all the requirements and procedures for EST&P admission as the U.S. citizens. Complete information on the process of applying to EST&P is available on the Quick Guide for Applying to EST&P.

All applicants must complete and submit their application by the posted deadlines.

  • If you believe you should be exempt from the English language certification requirement, you must make a formal request to the EST&P admissions committee for exemption from TOEFL or IELTS standardized test requirement.  This is done by sending an email to energy@andrew.cmu.edu and outlining your unique circumstances.  Should you choose not to take the test without getting prior approval from the EST&P because you believe you are exempt, your application may not be reviewed by the admissions commitee.
  • For TOEFL/IELTS delivery instructions and recommended scores, see FAQ #5 & #13.
