International Admissions (Freshmen and Undergraduate Students)

Welcome!

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.

In addition to facilitating study abroad opportunities for ACPHS students, the Office 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, which helps students learn how to speak English with an American accent.

Below is some helpful information to get you started, but please do not hesitate to call 888-203-8010 or e-mail us if you have any questions.

SAT
The SAT examination is required of all international freshmen applicants. Competitive applicants are encouraged to take the exam no later than January of the year they wish to begin studies. For more information or to register, please visit the College Board Website.

TOEFL
Applicants who are not U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents are required to submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), unless English has been the primary language of instruction for four or more years.

A minimum score on the TOEFL of 474 paper-based (70% of the maximum score of 677), or 84 Internet-based (70% of the maximum score of 120) must be achieved to be considered for admission.

Foreign Credentials Evaluation
A completed Foreign Credentials Evaluation from World Education Services (WES) may be required. Freshmen applicants, unless providing a transcript in English from a well-known English language or international school, should complete a Document-by-Document Report. Any student with completed university coursework must submit a Course-by-Course Report.  

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.
