How to Apply as an Undergraduate International Student

  • Complete your free online application (If you are attending a secondary school, or if you have taken fewer than 12 credits at a college or university, complete the freshman application. If you have attempted at least 12 credits at a college or university, complete the transfer application.)
  • Submit your official transcripts from all high school and college/university institutions you have attended. A course-by-course credential evaluation completed by a NACES certified organization will be accepted if the transcript is not in the English language.
  • Testing requirements: 
    For the 2021 application cycle, Widener University has implemented an SAT/ACT-optional admission policy for domestic students. The testing policy for international students is best described as "test flexible" rather than "test optional". If an applicant does not have SAT/ACT scores, the TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo English Test scores will be required of all international applicants, with the exception of:
    • First-year applicants who have completed two or more years of high school in the United States or who have completed an English language-based curriculum (IB and A-Levels)
    • Transfer applicants who have completed two years of university-level English coursework in the United States
    • Applicants who have completed an approved ESL course in the United States at the Advanced Level
    • Applicants who come from one of the US Government English proficiency test-exempt countries (see English Proficiency tab for list)
  • Fulfill the English Proficiency requirements (see tab for more details and a list of country exemptions)
  • Additional program-specific requirements apply for students seeking admission into an engineering or nursing program.
