International Students

English proficiency

In addition to the general requirements stated above, all international students applying for admission must submit at the time of application a score of not less than 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The test must include the writing section (TWE), which is included in the September, October, March, and May administrations. The faculty provides no testing to meet admission requirements in English. To register for the TOEFL/TWE test, applicants may contact:

      P. O. Box 6151
      Princeton, NJ 08541-6151, USA
      (609) 882-6601

This requirement may be waived for applicants who have earned an academic degree from an accredited institution of higher learning in which the language of instruction is English.

Obtaining a student visa

The Certificate of Eligibility (I-20) needed for obtaining a student visa for entry into the United States requires certification that the admitted student is qualified for admission into a degree program and has sufficient financial resources to provide for tuition and living expenses. This certification must be on the Form I-20 at the time the student appears at the Embassy for a visa.

To be eligible for entry into the United States for graduate study, the completed "Statement of Financial Resources" form with attached documentation (the form is sent upon inquiry from the Admissions Office) must be sent to the Admissions Office. This should be done as soon as possible after the applicant has been notified that his/her application for admission has been approved. The Admission Office will make financial certification on the I-20, based on funds in the student's account and on pledges of support by individuals, churches, foundations, and other sources.
