While grades and test scores are important factors to consider when universities admit students, ITU looks beyond these numbers and stats. We take a holistic approach and consider the student’s academic rigor and professional and life experiences that make up the whole student. Please review our admissions requirements below.
All eligible applicants must possess a Bachelor’s Degree or international equivalent degree from an accredited institution. ITU reserves the right to probe or prohibit educational credential submissions on an ad-hoc basis.
The application for admission must be successfully completed and submitted online. Please note that after submission, no changes to your application can be made. In addition, please make copies of all submitted documents for your personal use, as ITU does not provide originals or copies of submitted documents.

Statement of Purpose
At ITU, students are motivated and committed to complete their respective programs with the ultimate goal of enhancing their fields of study. The Admissions Review Committee wants to understand your goals and career plans as they relate to your academic endeavors. A 750-word, typed, well written, statement explaining why you wish to pursue graduate study in your particular program at ITU must include your name as it appears on your application and be uploaded to the Statement of Purpose section of the application. Mailed submissions are not accepted.
A copy of your most recent resume or curriculum vitae must be uploaded to the online application. Mailed submissions are not accepted.
Official Transcripts & Degree Conferral
We welcome students from all majors and backgrounds and look for demonstration of aptitude for both quantitative and qualitative coursework. Admitted students have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher. If you have less than a 2.75 cumulative GPA and your undergraduate curriculum did not include quantitative coursework, we strongly recommend that you take the GRE or GMAT to demonstrate your quantitative abilities.
Transcripts from all post-secondary institutions where you have attended and earned credit are required. You may upload unofficial or student-reported documentation for admission consideration but you will be required to provide an official transcript upon acceptance to the program.
English Language Proficiency Testing
Mastery of the English language is critical to the ITU learning experience. All US citizens and US Permanent Residents whose first language is not English and or who have not completed a bachelor’s degree in the United States must demonstrate English language proficiency including reading, writing and comprehension.
ITU accepts TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) of 72 or better.
GRE & GMAT
ITU does not require GRE or GMAT test score submissions for admission consideration. In cases where the applicant’s cumulative GPA is less than 2.75, submission of a GRE and/or GMAT is highly recommended.
Letters of Recommendation
ITU does not require letters of recommendation for admission consideration to ITU programs. In cases where the applicant’s prior academic background/ experience is not in the STEM fields, submission of letters of recommendation from field-professionals is highly recommended. Only letters of recommendation (1) composed within the past six months, (2) submitted on company letterhead and (3) via PDF format are accepted for admission consideration.
