International Student Admissions
- 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.)
- A minimum composite score of 21 on the American College Test (ACT) or 990 or above on the SAT is required.
- 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.
- 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.
