Applying to Biden School Programs
As an international student, you will complete the same application process as domestic students to be considered for admission into any Biden School of Public Policy & Administration graduate program. You can access the online application through the Apply Now page.
Please keep in mind that all application materials must be submitted online, including your unofficial transcripts, exam scores, and letters of recommendation. Please do not mail paper copies of any application materials unless a Biden School faculty or staff member specifically instructs you to do so.
