International Students

Are applications from non-U.S. citizens treated differently in the admission process?

No. We consider all applications in the same way, regardless of citizenship or high school location. We also make no distinctions between international and domestic students when considering financial need.

Are there special admission requirements for students applying from abroad?

 If English is not the primary language spoken in your home and you attend a school where English is not the language of instruction, you must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System Academic (IELTS Academic) or the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic), in addition to the SAT Reasoning (or ACT, with Writing, where offered). SAT Subject Tests are recommended but not required. Otherwise, there are no additional admission requirements for international students or U.S. citizens attending high schools abroad. Review our tips for international students.

Are the admission officers familiar with the educational systems of other countries?

Yes, we are familiar with the educational systems and academic credentials of most countries around the world. You are welcome to provide additional information about the educational system in your country.

Are international students eligible for financial aid?

Yes. Our policy of meeting financial need in full for admitted students applies to all admitted students, regardless of citizenship.
