Students from foreign countries who wish to study at the University of Saint Francis should start their correspondence 8 to 12 months prior to enrollment and be admitted no less than 45 days before the start of the semester. Students must also:
- Submit a completed application and supporting documents.
- Present official records of completion of academic work comparable to a secondary school program in the United States. All documentation in languages other than English must be accompanied by certified English translations and a course-by-course evaluation completed by World Education Services (WES) or a similar organization.
- Provide certification of English proficiency by earning a score of 550 or above on the paper and pencil test, 80 or above on the internet-based test, or 213 or above on the computerized version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Students who do not complete this requirement must demonstrate their mastery of English by completing an ESL (English as a Second Language) program prior to beginning their university coursework.
- Show proof of financial capability sufficient to meet all expenses for one year. Once an applicant has provided this documentation, and after the applicant has been accepted for academic admission, a deposit of $150 in U.S. currency must be submitted to the University of Saint Francis. After the deposit is received, the I-20 form needed to obtain a student visa will be issued.
- Show proof of adequate health and accident insurance coverage upon arrival in the U.S. or arrange for such coverage.
