As you probably know, applying for admission to colleges in the U.S. can be confusing. Lourdes will work with you to make the process as simple as possible. Please review the list below for specific requirements for international admission.
For first-time international University applicants submit the International Admissions Application in addition to official high school transcript or record in the applicant’s native language as well as an official copy to World Education Services (www.wes.org) for an international Academic Credential evaluation at the expense of the student.
For international University transfer applicants, submit the International Admissions Application in addition to official transcript (s) or record from all colleges or universities attended and high school records in the applicant’s native language as well as ALL international transcripts must then be sent by the student to World Education Services (www.wes.org) for an international Academic Credential evaluation and translation at the expense of the student.
We invite you to apply to Lourdes by submitting the following items (required for all international students):
Proof of healthcare insurance.
A bank statement showing at least an academic year's cost, two (2) semesters, of tuition to cover costs for books, food, housing, tuition, and transportation.
Students with no post high school courses must submit an official transcript from high school to WES (World Education Services) for academic evaluation. The WES Evaluation that is sent to Lourdes will serve as the student’s official transcript for admissions purposes.
Students who have attended a college and or university upon completion of high school must submit official transcripts from all prior colleges or universities attended to WES (World Education Services) for academic evaluation. The WES Evaluation that is sent to Lourdes will serve as the student’s official transcript for admissions purposes.
Completed International Application Form for Admission with a fee of $25 U.S.
A copy of the student’s passport.
A copy of the student’s I-94
After we receive the above items, we will process your application and an admission decision will be made as soon as possible. Once you have accepted our offer of admission, you will be sent an I-20 form. Because this I-20 form is not a visa, it is imperative that you take this form to the nearest American Embassy or Consulate. They will review your case and grant you a student visa. Once you receive your visa, you can enter the USA 30 days before classes start. Upon arrival you will be issued an I-94 card. This document is important for you to keep.
If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Admissions.
