Admission procedures for international students are the same as those for applicants from the United States, with the exception of two additional requirements. Because instruction is given in English, prospective students with a native language other than English are required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), administered by the Educational Testing Service, will be made part of the applicant’s file.
International students are also reminded that in order to obtain their Certificate of Eligibility, Form I-20, they must provide the financial aid office with a valid affidavit of support, from either personal funds, family funds, or funds from another source (type/source specified). To comply with this request, we ask that the applicant complete the College Board International Student Certification of Finances. This form is available through the admissions office.
As an international student, you have to have your transcripts evaluated by World Education Services.org for equivalency to United States secondary education and have them submitted directly from WES.org to us for admissions decisions to be made. Here is the link https://www.wes.org/.
