Applicants, including U.S. citizens, who earned their undergraduate or law degree at an institution outside the U.S. must arrange, at their own expense, to have their academic records evaluated on a course-by-course basis by a US credentials evaluation service. The applicant is responsible for providing this evaluation to the Graduate Tax Program Office.

The Supplemental International Applicant Information Sheet and information about credential evaluation are available from the International Student Advisor at 410.837.4756.
