1. A completed application, including including a one page essay on one of four topics detailed in the application.
2. A $25 non-refundable application fee.
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.
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 www.toefl.org 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 the World Education Services (www.wes.org; 212-966-6311) or Josef Silny and Associates (www.jsilny.com; 305-273-1616). The evaluation should include grade point calculations for each institution attended.
6. If admitted, applicants will be asked to provide a financial statement documenting verified sources of adequate financial resources required for attendance. Students will receive the I-20 Immigration Form after they have been accepted for admission and submitted the financial resources form.
