Saint Augustine’s University is proud of its diverse student body and welcomes your international point of view. Students seeking admissions must first complete an online application for the semester for which they plan to enroll.
The university recognizes international applicants as those with citizenship other than the United States of America. Permanent Residents of the United States should complete a domestic application and include a photocopy of their Permanent Resident card.
International students are expected to meet the same requirements as other students under the new freshman or transfer student classification. In addition, all international students must:
- Show proficiency in written and oral English usage. If English is not the first language of communication, send official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores to the Admissions Office.
- Provide notarized statement(s) certifying the source of all financial resources to be utilized to cover the cost of tuition.
- Have all transcripts translated and evaluated into English by an independent agency, such as World Educational Services (WES) or Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE).
- Submit a copy of your Visa and Passport
International Student Application Deadlines:
- Fall Semester: May 1
- Spring Semester: Oct 1
The Registrar’s Office will issue the I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility) after the applicant has been admitted to the institution, provided a copy of his/her passport, and completed the Form I-134, Affidavit of Support (with supporting documentation.) Additionally, international students are expected to pay a deposit (half of the tuition/fees and room/board charges) one semester in advance. The University has no financial aid for international students and permission to work is usually not granted by the Department of Homeland Security. International students may, however, work on campus (less than 40 hours per week.)
International students should have a completed admission application on file three months before the beginning of the term in which they intend to enroll.
Saint Augustine’s University admissions policies are consistent with the mission of the institution and do not discriminate against applicants, students, or employees, based on race, color, creed, religion, gender, national origin, age or disability. In addition, Saint Augustine’s University seeks to promote a multinational and multiracial student population by recruiting and enrolling students without regard to race, gender or ethnicity.
