Clinical Trials Certificate Program Admission Criteria

International Applicants

International applicants are encouraged to apply to the Regulatory Affairs program(s). At this time, however, the Regulatory Affairs Department does NOT offer sponsorships in the form of student visas or monetary assistantships.

  • Deadline for Application Materials is April 15th. We admit only time per academic year. All application materials required for admission consideration must be received by application deadlines noted. If you application arrives after the deadline, we will consider your application for the next cycle.
  • Because we are a distance learning web-based program only, all international students, if admitted, are able to participate in our program from their home countries.   Thus, our department does NOT offer student visa sponsorships.
  • In addition, the Regulatory Affairs academic program is a part-time only program offering one to two courses a semester for students.   We do not offer a full-time academic course load.
  • Our program does not offer teaching or financial assistantships or stipends of any sort.
  • The TOEFL test is required if you received your last degree from an institution where English is not the primary language. Information on this examination can be found at and below.   Your TOEFL scores must be available before we can consider your application for admission.  It is your responsibility to ensure that these scores are sent to the University in a timely manner.
    • TOEFL scores must be no older than two years.
  • Tip: Be mindful of spelling and grammar on your application materials. Be sure to submit documents that have been properly proof-read and corrected for errors. Poorly edited application materials could prevent an applicant from admission to the program.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) requirements

TOEFL scores are required for both the Certificate and Masters Programs if you received your last degree from an institution where English is not the primary language. Therefore, you will need to provide official copies of your TOEFL scores to the UGA Graduate School in order to be considered for admission. Official scores are those sent to the Office of Graduate Admissions by Educational Testing Service. The scores may not be more than two years old.
