  • Complete the application form including a recent photo;
  • Provide a letter of financial support from a sponsor's bank for a $21,000 minimum;
  • Enclose a $50 processing fee; if outside of the U.S., pay the $50 fee through Flywire;
  • Provide transcripts of college and secondary grades translated into English, bearing the school seal, and signed by the registrar or other appropriate official;
  • Provide a copy of an English proficiency test (not required if your native language is English). If you do not have English proficiency test results (or scored too low), go to our Intensive English Program page to apply.

Students must fill out the International/F-1 Visa Student Application and submit a complete packet containing all of the supporting documents either by mail, or in person, to the International Student Program office.
