If you earned a bachelor’s degree from outside the U.S. and/or you do not hold U.S. citizenship or permanent residency, you are required to demonstrate proof of English proficiency via an official TOEFL report that includes a total score and category scores in reading, writing, listening and speaking. (The TOEFL requirement may be waived if you have been a full-time student at a U.S. college or university for at least two consecutive years, or if you are from a country in which English is a primary language.)

  • If you have a valid TOEFL score, please send directly to Rosalind Franklin University at Institution Code 1117 from ETS.
  • For the TOEFL score to be accepted, the TOEFL exam date must be no more than two years prior to the date of application submission.
  • A TOEFL iBT (Internet-based test) of 100 or the equivalent is recommended for graduate school with no category score being lower than 22.


You may fulfill the letter of recommendation requirement by either of the below options:

  • Have one letter of recommendation submitted by an academician who knows you well (i.e. pre-health advisors/committees or professors).
  • Have two letters of recommendation submitted from professionals (e.g. supervisors and/or co-workers) who know you well and can speak to your performance in a professional setting.

Letters of recommendation must be submitted through HAMPCAS.


Official transcripts from each U.S. college, university or community college previously attended must be submitted directly to HAMPCAS.

If you have studied outside the U.S., you will need to have your transcript/s evaluated for U.S. equivalency using a service like WES or ECE. Please have foreign evaluations sent directly to the Office of Admissions and Enrollment at Rosalind Franklin University.

The Master of Science in Health Administration program will accept up to nine quarter hours of credits earned from an external institution. An admitted student may request transfer credit by meeting the following conditions.

The student must:

  • Demonstrate that the course(s) meets and/or contains equivalent core learning competencies for the requested transfer. This must be shown through a course syllabus and/or other official course material.
  • Have earned the credit from an accredited college or university at the graduate level.
  • Have earned a final course grade of B or better for the course requesting to transfer. (RFU will accept a Pass grade if the course is graded only on a pass-fail basis.)

Credits earned in an RFUMS graduate certificate program may also be considered for transfer as core or elective credits. For internal RFUMS transfer credits, the total number may exceed nine credit hours. However, previously taken internal courses must be deemed as satisfying the master’s degree requirements for the Health Administration program.
