International students should follow the process outlined for freshmen admissions if they have not previously attended college, or follow the process outlined for transfer admissions if they have previously attended college.
- International student transcripts (foreign transcripts) must be academically translated by World Education Services (www.wes.org) or an approved accredited service.
- In addition, students whose native language is not English are required to submit a score of 500 or above on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL Paper), or 60 or above on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT), or have proof they have attended and successfully completed an English as a Second Language (ESL) program and/or have a satisfactory score on the SAT or ACT. Oral communication skills are the responsibility of each student.
- International students must be enrolled as a full-time student with at least 9 hours in the classroom (On Day Campus) to fulfill the requirements of the International Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVIS). Those students wishing to take courses through the Internet must simultaneously enroll in classroom courses on our Day Campus in Gaffney.
- Prior to the issuance of an F-1 student visa, a processing fee of $250 must be paid.
