  • International English Language Test (IELTS) minimum score of 6

Pay the $100 non-refundable application fee via your electronic application or pay by cash, check, money order, or credit card in our Business Office.

Step 3 Submit Official Transcripts

Submit final official transcript(s) from ALL college level institutions previously attended. If courses were taken at a college or university outside of the United States, a course-by-course evaluation with GPA from an authorized credential evaluation agency is required.

Request SpanTran Evaluation.

Step 4 Submit Affidavit of Support documented evidence of financial solvency (financial statement documentation)
