    • We require international school transcripts to be evaluated for equivalency with U.S. Standards. The preferred place for this evaluation is the World Education Services (WES). WES charges a fee and requires an original transcript sent directly by the school. Please have WES send their evaluation directly to the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education at the address listed below.
  • TOFEL (international student applicants only).  The TOEFL code for Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University is B191.
    • International applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in a third-party, unscripted interview with a company such as InitialView. While an interview is not required, it can help strengthen a prospective student’s application. Interviews do not replace the TOEFL or IELTS; TOEFL or IELTS score submission is required. Fluency in English is imperative for success in the MS in Integrative Neuroscience program.​
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) (recommended but not required)
  • MS Integrative Neuroscience Supplemental Application
