Non-U.S. Citizen Applicants

Admission to Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences is generally open to U.S. workers. Therefore, visa sponsorship is generally not available. Certain Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences programs have been granted approval to admit non-U.S. workers, in which case the program-specific website will state such on its admissions page.

U.S. worker refers to those who are authorized to work in the United States, including:

  1. U.S. citizens
  2. U.S. nationals
  3. Lawful permanent residents
  4. Asylees and refugees

Applicants whose primary language is not English must submit results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language Internet-based test (TOEFL iBT). Scores from the speaking portion of the exam are given particular consideration in admission decisions. Learn more about the exam and register online at the Educational Testing Service. The Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences school code for the TOEFL iBT is 5784.

Applicants who completed their education training outside the U.S. must have their educational transcripts translated (if they are not already in English) and evaluated for U.S. equivalency by an accredited credential evaluation service company prior to submission. Refer to the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services for a list of qualified companies. The applicant pays for the examination and credential evaluation services.
