International Students

Lindsey Wilson College welcomes applications from international students. International students who demonstrate a high level of English proficiency and a desire for an education will be considered for admission.  International applicants must adhere to the following:

  1. All international applications for admission to Lindsey Wilson College must be completed by the individual applying for the program. Friends or relatives may not act as intermediaries;
  2. Students must submit a high school transcript and/or a diploma reflecting their graduation date, class rank, and grade point average.  The document must be translated into English; and
  3. Students transferring from another college or university must submit all postsecondary education transcripts, including transcripts from language institutes.  The transcripts must be translated into English.

All international students must submit an affidavit of financial support from a bank or employer reflecting available funds for college expenses or other proof that financial obligations will be met. 

International students and students who have been out of high school one year or more and who are applying to undergraduate programs may have the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) requirement waived.  Students without scores from either the ACT or SAT may be required to take a series of placement tests on campus. 

An acceptable level of English proficiency is required of all international students applying to undergraduate programs.  One of the following methods may be used to demonstrate English proficiency:

  1. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of at least 450 paper-based, 133 computer-based, or 45 iBT.  The official test score must be sent to the Admissions Office;
  2. English is the student's native language; or
  3. Michigan Placement Test Score of at least 60 and attendance of a summer-orientation program. 

International students applying to a graduate program must take and submit scores for the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System).  The minimum acceptable score for the TOEFL is 550 for the paper-based test or a total score of 79 or above with section scores of 21 on writing and 19 on reading on the Internet-based test (iBT).  The minimum acceptable composite score for the IELTS is 6.5.
