Checklist for International Students

In addition to above requirements, international students must provide the following:

  1. English verification: An international applicant whose native language is not English is required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. A minimum score of 80 (Internet based-iBT) is required on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) taken within two years before the term for which admission is sought. (SIUE's institutional code is 1759, and the department code is 00). International English Language Testing System (IELTS) results also can be used to satisfy our English language proficiency admission requirement. The minimum IELTS total band score required is 6.5. The English proficiency is waived for international students who have completed a Bachelors degree in the United States. The English proficiency requirement also is waived for applicants who, within five years of the proposed date of enrollment in the University, have graduated with an acceptable Bachelors (or equivalent) degree from a college or university in a country where English is the native language and at which English is the primary language of instruction. A waiver of the English proficiency requirement also may be granted to applicants who satisfactorily complete at least two academic years of full-time graduate study under the provisions described in this paragraph. Full-time graduate study is a minimum of 18 completed hours in a full academic year, with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

  2. International Student Visa Information Form: Be sure to fully answer all questions on the web application and provide details about your Visa status. Additional information may be found on the International Students Admissions Website.

  3. Financial Verification. SIUE complies with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations that govern the financial eligibility of international students. Regulations require that international students provide evidence of sufficient financial resources to support all their living and education expenses during their stay in the United States.

    To receive financial approval for admission and a Form I-20 or DS-2019 (the forms necessary to get a student F or J visa), a student must submit a current notarized bank letter indicating in U.S. dollars that the applicant or sponsor has adequate funds immediately available. The student also must complete the Financial Form in the admission application. The University reserves the right to require tuition deposits, if deemed necessary. Additional information may be found on the International Students Admissions Website.
