  • One letter of recommendation
  • Your most recent high school transcripts
    • Transcripts must be in English or sent along with a certified translation.
    • International transcript evaluations are not required, but can be sent as additional supporting material.
  • Documentation of Financial Support
    • All students who will be studying on an F-1 Student Visa or J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa are required to submit financial documentation at the time of application. Please submit documents confirming available funds for the annual costs of study (such as savings deposits, checking accounts, or a signed bank letter verifying the ability to pay educational expenses). All documented sources of support must be:

      • written in English

    • To determine the total required, please refer to the International Student Financial Statement.
  • SAT and/or ACT scores are not required, but can be sent as additional supporting material.
  • TOEFL and IELTS scores are not required. However, we do suggest if you have those scores to send them in order to receive the best admission placement for your English level.
