Proof of English Proficiency - International students must demonstrate a satisfactory level of English proficiency. Any student whose native language is not English must submit an official TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score. The following TOEFL scores are required for admission: 213 or higher (computer-based); 80 or higher (Internet-based); or 550 or higher (paper-based). Students who have taken the Internet-based TOEFL test should have no individual section score lower than 20. Students who have taken the IELTS should have a minimum overall band score of 6.5 and no individual score lower than 6.0. International students who have completed courses equivalent to Stevenson University's ENG 151 and ENG 152 with a grade of "C" or better may possibly be considered for an exemption from the TOEFL or IELTS requirements.
Transcripts and Certificates of Previous Academic Work - International students who have attended or who are currently attending a U.S. post-secondary institution must submit official transcripts from all institutions. Students who have completed post-secondary coursework outside of the U.S. must submit these records for evaluation directly to either World Education Services or the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. Transfer students who have completed less than 30 credits (as determined by an evaluation) will be required to submit an evaluation of the official secondary school transcript.
Required Documents - A legible and high quality copy of an unexpired passport identification page is required of all international students. An international student currently attending another post-secondary institution in the United States must also submit a copy of his or her current Departure Record (I-94), and U.S. visa. International students currently holding a student (F-1) visa must also submit a copy of his/her Certificate of Eligibility (I-20).
Official Bank Statement - All applicants holding or intending to seek an F-1 student visa must submit a current bank official statement in English verifying the student's financial resources in U.S. dollars for the entire cost of attendance for one year. The cost of attendance for international students can be found in the International Student FAQ.
