                 Application Process
1. Submit an international student application form, available from the Enrollment
   Services Office. A US $40 application fee is required.

2. Submit official transcript(s) of courses and grades from secondary school (high
   school) and from college or university, if attended. To be considered for
   admission, the transcript must show courses and grades that indicate an ability to
   pursue college-level coursework. Normally, a minimum C average (or equivalent)
   meets our criteria. Transcripts should include an English translation.

3. Submit financial documentation demonstrating an ability to pay for the full costs
   of education and accommodation in the US while a student.
                   Application Process
4. Submit TOEFL results, if taken. EvCC does not require the TOEFL, but it is
   helpful in determining your language level. EvCC requires all students to take our
   own on-campus placement test at the time of arrival. This test helps an advisor
   and student select the correct level of courses for the student. Students with low
   English skills will be placed in intensive English classes during their first term(s).

5. Admitted students will be sent a letter of admission, an I-20, and more
   information about arrival, homestay, orientation, etc.

6.    Students who are admitted will be asked at the time of their arrival to submit a
     copy of their personal health and accident insurance policy. Insurance is required
     in order to register for classes. (Students who plan to drive a car in the US must
     also carry an additional auto insurance policy.)
We look forward to hearing
        from you!
