International Student Admissions

  1. To be considered for admission, an international student must submit the regular application for admission form and transcript(s) from high school and/or colleges previously attended. The transcripts must be submitted for evaluation. The evaluations must be completed by a certified professional credential evaluation service of a course-by-course evaluation. Applicants may select any National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member to provide this service. (See NACES web site, www.naces.org, for a list of NACES members.)
  2. A minimum composite score of 21 on the American College Test (ACT) or 990 or above on the SAT is required.
  3. The international student should give evidence of having adequate financial support (scholarships, affidavit of support, etc.) before his arrival on the campus. The University does not assume responsibility for a student who arrives with inadequate resources.
  4. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required to adequately determine proficiency in the English language. If it is determined that English is used as a “second language” in the applicant’s country of origin, the TOEFL requirement may be waived. A minimum composite score of 525 (195 computer-based) on the TOEFL is required.

Note: Normally, a course by course evaluation is necessary. Be sure to list Alcorn as the report recipient.

         The I-20 form authorizing the student’s visa is sent after the student is accepted.
