International Students

The College Preparation Program welcomes applications from international students. International students enrolling in the college credit study option must enter the US on a student visa and enroll as full-time students (three courses). International students enrolling in the IN FOCUS Seminars are not required to apply for a student visa, but may need to obtain a visitor visa to enter the US and participate in the program.

To allow sufficient time for processing visa requests, international students must apply by April 1, 2017. Upon acceptance to the program, you will receive specific instructions on how to obtain a visa. Please do not include any official documents with your application beyond those requested in the international applicant checklist (see above).

All international students must present sufficient evidence of ability to speak, read, and write in English through a minimum score of 100 (internet-based test) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
