INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Academic Credential Requirements for International Applicants

International applicants must have successfully completed the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree to be eligible for admission to the William & Mary online business programs. To apply to either program, you will need to submit copies of both your academic record and either the diploma or other documentation indicating the date and conferral of your degree. If the original language of the academic record and diploma is not English, a certified English translation must accompany the original document, and the translation should be literal rather than interpretive. If a certified copy of the original transcript is submitted, the institution from which the degree was received must certify it. Documents certified by a notary public are not acceptable. Credentials must include the following information:

  • Years of attendance
  • Courses taken
  • Grades achieved
  • Degree, diploma or certificate awarded and date of conferral

If you were provided with only one official copy of your transcript, you may submit a photocopy. If you are admitted, you will be required to submit the original to the Online Admissions Office for authentication.
