Academic Requirements by Country

Minimum academic qualifications have been determined for education systems in most countries, yet some programs require higher scores for selective admission. All students should have an educational background in the core curriculum of: science, mathematics, social science/history, and English to be considered for admission. This requirement must be met prior to the application deadline and the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA) or score at each institution should be included on the academic record itself or on a separate letter from a school official.
 

Please use the A-Z index below to find your country and view minimum academic scores, records required, how to submit official records and native language resources for applying to NDSU. If your country is not listed, please contact International Admissions and we can email you with specific requirements.
