Ten percent of ACPHS students are from outside the U.S. which means we understand your needs as an international applicant and will work closely with you to ensure the admissions process goes smoothly.
Should you decide to enroll at the College, our Office of Global Initatives is here to assist with your transition to the College and a new country. The Office of Global Initiatives works closely with international students by hosting special orientation events, leading off-campus field trips, and offering an English as a Second Language (ESL) class.
An application fee of $75 is required for first year, transfer, domestic, and international students. For students who conduct an official visit to the College, an Application Fee Waiver can be requested by contacting the Office of Admissions.
