International Admissions

International Student Admissions, within the Office of International Affairs, is your comprehensive resource for information, advice, and assistance. You will be assigned an international student advisor, who will guide you from enrollment through graduation.

To begin, your advisor will meet with you to review program options and requirements, and assist you in the application process. Once admitted, you will receive assistance with homestay options, student counseling, and maintaining program eligibility to meet graduation requirements.
International Student Admissions provides guidance with:

  • Academic programs and English proficiency requirements
  • Completing an application
  • Applying for financial aid or scholarships
  • Preparing files for evaluation of foreign transcripts
  • Maintaining program eligibility
  • Transferring credits

In addition to having an advisor to assist you when you are in the United States, National University has international student educational consultants located around the globe. To review information in your native language, please choose from the following options.
