Am I Considered an International Applicant?
Though all applications are read and evaluated individually, we view our international applicant pool as a loose collective comprised of non-U.S. citizens living abroad, U.S. or dual citizens living abroad, non-U.S. citizens living or at boarding school in the United States, and undocumented students.
What to Include in Your Application
Non-U.S. citizens are required to submit materials pertaining to the Certificate of Eligibility for non-immigrant (F-1) student status (I-20 form). Learn more on our pages for accepted students
