International students are encouraged to apply early. Candidates must submit the following credentials:
1. A completed application.
2. $25 (US) non-refundable application fee is required in order to begin processing the application.
3. SAT or ACT scores. Test scores should be forwarded directly to the University by using Bethune-Cookman’s CEEB code number, 5061; ACT code number, 0720. These are not required for acceptance; however, to be considered for an Academic Scholarship, they are required for consideration.
While there is no stated minimum test score, candidates should have achieved scores near the national averages of college-bound students. The ACT English/Writing or SAT Writing sections are required for scholarship candidates.
4. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score if the applicant’s first language is not English. The University may consider a waiver of this requirement if the applicant has completed significant academic coursework in English. Contact TOEFL or call (609) 881-7100 for information on the test.
5. A translation and evaluation of all secondary and college academic credentials from a service such as:
- World Education Services (212-966-6311)
- Josef Silny and Associates (305-273-1616).The evaluation should include grade point calculations for each institution attended.
