International Applicants

In addition to the standard supplemental documents required, international applicants must have score reports submitted for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) if their native language is not English and must complete the International Student Admissions Handbook for F-1 Students, including an Affidavit of Financial Support.
Furthermore, all students who attended a non-U.S. institution must have their educational documents translated into English and evaluated on a course-by-course basis by an accredited agency as to the U.S. equivalency of their course work (see here for an agency listing). An I-20 cannot be issued until after the student is officially admitted to The College. For more information, including required forms, please visit the International Student Services Web site.

Students planning to attend an overseas/international site are not required to complete an I-20 or an Affidavit of Financial Support.
