For International students

When choosing their courses, non-native-English-speakers should consider their level of English proficiency and familiarity with the subject matter. Some courses require substantially more reading and writing than others. Students from non-English-speaking countries are required to submit copies of TOEFL scores: for success in Summer Session classes, we strongly recommend a TOEFL score above 100. Admission decisions are made based on the applicant's academic records and his/her standing at the college where degree work is being pursued. Other records or references in addition to the transcript may be requested. Applicants will be notified promptly of admission decisions.
