Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
A completed application form. We recommend that international students apply via the International Student Online Application.
A $50 application fee.
An official transcript sent directly from your secondary school. Photocopies of transcripts are not acceptable. Transcripts must be translated into English. If you are not able to provide an official, translated transcript, we recommend that you utilize the services of the Center for Educational Documentation (opens in new window), to provide Fisher College with appropriate documentation.
Official results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or its equivalent. Fisher accepts a variety of other language examinations, such as:
Paper-based TOEFL (PbT)
Computer-based TOEFL (CbT)
Internet-based TOEFL (IbT)
Cambridge PET exam
The STEP Eiken exam (Japan)
The ESPT exam (Korea)
iTEP Academics: The International Test of English Proficiency (iTEP) with a minimum score of Level 5 or higher. TheiTEP score is valid for two years.
The minimum TOEFL score required for direct acceptance is 61iBT. Students with lower scores may be conditionally accepted to Fisher, or be required to attend language development courses. Students take college-level courses at the discretion of their Academic Advisor. (The school code for Fisher College is 3391.)
A notarized, current bank statement verifying that the student has a minimum of $49,000.00 U.S. Dollars in a cash account available for his or her use. If the bank account is not in the student's name, then a notarized letter of support should accompany the notarized bank statement from the holder of the account. Most consulates around the world require the applicant to prove that he or she is able to pay for his or her entire program of study.
Official college transcripts. If you intend to transfer from another college/university, you will need to forward official transcripts from that college as well as written course descriptions.
Transfer Release Form. International students transferring their I-20 from another college or language school must submit a transfer release form and a copy of their I-20 from the last college attended. All transfer students must be in good academic standing, must owe no money to their previous college, and must not have any judicial or criminal complaints against them.
