International Freshman Applicants

What we need from you:

  • Your completed Freshman application with your personal statement
  • $40 application fee (or waiver request)
  • Your International Student Certification of Finances form and third-party documentation
  • Official transcripts (mark sheets) of all secondary and post-secondary academic work, including all official documents (in English) and an explanation of the grading system

Financial assistance:

Limited financial assistance is available for non-U.S. citizens. These grants, awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement, range from $2,000 to $18,000 per year and do not require a separate application. Private loans are available to students with either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident as a co-signer. Limited student worker positions are also available on campus.

When to apply:

Since many programs will be fully enrolled by March, you are encouraged to apply by January 15. However:
  • Apply no later than December 15 if you plan to start in the January term.
  • Apply by February 1 to be considered for our nursing program.
