Students with fewer than 24 semester hours of earned college-level credit must also submit a high school transcript or the equivalency of a US high school transcript and diploma as well as complete an entrance exam such as the ACT, SAT or COMPASS.

English Proficiency

Students who wish to apply for admission to the English Language Institute (ELI) are not required to demonstrate English proficiency. All other applicants should submit official documentation of English Proficiency. Click here for English Proficiency Requirements.

Entrance Exam

All applicants must complete the ACT, SAT or COMPASS exam. Students who have not completed the ACT or SAT may take the COMPASS exam on campus upon arrival and after admission to assist in advisement and course placement. However, if ACT or SAT scores are available, please provide this documentation along with the application for admission. Students with more than 24 semester hours of earned college-level credit are not required to take an entrance exam.

Evidence of Sufficient Financial Support

Undergraduate costs are estimated at $20,912 USD for 9 months of study including tuition and fees, housing, meals, books and other living expenses. Applicants must provide certified evidence of the source and amount of funding that will be utilized to support educational expenses. Documents must be official and issued within the 6 months previous to the time of application. No copies are accepted. Please add an additional $3,000 per each dependent.

For students who will be financing their own studies, a form has been provided to assist you with the process. If someone else is paying for your studies, that person must fill out the Financial Sponsor Statement. This can be a family member, a friend, a company, or a government.
