Information for International MBA & MAcc Applicants

Eberhardt School of Business: A Great Business School for International Students

Pacific and the Eberhardt School makes a special effort to help potential international business school applicants, like yourself, throughout the entire experience. This begins with the application process, continues with support while in a graduate business program, and includes professional guidance in developing area networks via internship and other experiential opportunities.

The diversity of the cultural and professional background you will bring as an international student is one of the great treasures of the Eberhardt Programs. We have helped launch fast track careers for international students from all the continents of the world.

If you are an international student, that is, neither a citizen nor a permanent resident of the United States, there are a few additional application process requirements you should keep in mind:

Application Deadlines

You should submit a completed application packet four to six weeks prior to posted Round 1 (January 15) and Round 2 (March 1) deadlines in order to accommodate the additional processing for required international documents; however, Round 3 applications will be accepted and considered on a space available basis once completed.

Transcript Evaluation

International students who have attended schools outside of the United States must submit an evaluation of their academic records by WES. This evaluation will include a course by course evaluation and determine the equivalence of your current work to a U.S. Bachelor's degree. (see more details)


You must request an official transcript of academic work from each college or university you have attended as either an undergraduate or a graduate student and official verification of degree awarded through World Education Services (WES).

All transcripts must be submitted in an envelope sealed by the issuing university. Unofficial copies of academic records are not acceptable. To be considered "official" your transcripts must remain sealed as they were by the issuing university. Forward these documents directly to the WES per their instruction; please do not open the envelope as this will void the transcripts.

English Proficiency Exam Results
If you are an international student, you must provide a satisfactory score on an English proficiency examination. The minimum Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score is 550 PBT, 213 CBT or 90 IBT. The minimum International English Language Testing System (IELTS) overall score is 7.0.

An English proficiency examination is not required of applicants who have received a bachelor's degree from an accredited United States college or university. The TOEFL should be sent directly through BusinessCAS and the code is B888. There is not an institutional code for IELTS and these scores should be sent to the University of the Pacific directly.


Certification of Finances Information

Government regulations require that international students provide evidence that they are able to meet the financial requirements of their education, living expenses, and miscellaneous costs. To meet this requirement, you must complete and submit the Certificate of Finances form and the required supporting documents outlined in that form. Please note that the I-20 process cannot be completed without this information. This information is typically required after your acceptance and confirmation into a graduate program at Pacific.

Student Visas (F-1)

Upon confirmation of your acceptance and after receipt of the certification of finances form and supporting information, we will mail you a certificate of eligibility (I-20) for a nonimmigrant student. To obtain the F-1 visa you must take the certificate to the U.S. Consulate in your country.

If you are currently attending another U.S. institution and not leaving the U.S. before coming to Pacific, please check with Pacific's International Programs and Services office for renewal requirements.
