Who is considered an international student?

International applicants are individuals who either completed their prior education at an institution outside of the U.S., or are non-native English speakers. Please note that CSU Global is not a Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) certified school and does not participate in issuing or recertification of student visas.

What are the admissions requirements for international students?

In addition to meeting standard admissions requirements, international applicants must submit documentation of English proficiency. While alternative English proficiency measurements may be considered for provisional admission, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exams are preferred. 

What level of English language proficiency is required?

Undergraduate applicants who have not graduated from a high school located in the United States or in one of the English-speaking countries listed on the CIA World Factbook website must demonstrate an appropriate level of English language proficiency to be eligible for admission by submitting one of the following:

  • The Internet-based or paper-based version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum score of 60 on the Internet exam, 173 on the computer exam, or 500 on the paper exam is required for admittance.
  • The International English Language Testing System (IELTS), including the academic writing and academic reading modules. A minimum score of 5.0 is required for admittance.
  • An official transcript indicating completion of an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree from a U.S. regionally accredited college or university.
  • An official transcript indicating a grade of C or higher (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) in an English composition course from a regionally-accredited U.S. college or university. The course must be equivalent to U.S. college composition and the class must have been completed within the last two (2) years.
  • An official transcript indicating the applicant has passed the U.S. General Education Development (GED) test within the last five (5) years.

All scores or transcript must be sent directly to CSU Global directly from the issuing organization. Photocopied, faxed, emailed, or unofficial documents will not be accepted.
