When individuals educated at foreign institutions apply for admission, they must submit documentation that their previous education is equivalent to that of a United States high school diploma. The applicant must provide an English translation of the high school equivalent and an evaluation of the documentation by a qualified evaluator. An in-person or telephone (E-mail, if outside the United States) interview will be conducted with each applicant as part of the admissions process.
If the applicant requires an Immigration Certificate of Acceptance (Form I-20), the applicant must be accepted and pay a registration fee and tuition for two quarters of study before an I-20 can be issued. With these exceptions, the conditions for admission of foreign applicants are identical with those for non-foreign applicants. Foreign students must attend no less than twelve (12) credit hours per quarter.
