International Students

International students must be fully fluent in the English language.  Non-native speakers of English must also submit a TOEFL score of >80 or proof by transcript of at least three years in an English speaking International School.

  • Please note that in processing your application, the Admissions Committee may telephone you to conduct a brief interview. The purpose of the interview will simply be to help us confirm English-speaking fluency.


All International Students (Day and Residential) must have US Health Care coverage during the program session. As a Residential International Student you will be automatically enrolled in a comprehensive plan and the charge is included in your tuition.  As a Day Student, US Health Insurance is an additional charge that will be added to your invoice.  Please refer to our Student Insurance page for more details on the plan.


Please note that, based on U.S. State Department rules and regulations, the appropriate status for travel to our program is “visitor” not “student.” Please refer to the following for all relevant information for your Scholar.
