Undergraduate Catalog 2009-2011

International Student Admissions

International student applicants must complete an application for admission online at www.ccsu.edu/admission, and submit all required supporting credentials by the following deadlines. Fall semester candidates should submit applications by April 1; spring semester candidates should apply by November 1. All credentials submitted by the applicant become part of the student's permanent CCSU file and are not returned.

Applicants must submit official copies of their secondary and post-secondary educational records. If records are in a language other than English, official translations must be submitted as well. Applicants whose native language is not English are required to demonstrate their proficiency in English by submitting a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) test score of at least 500 on the written test (173 on computer-based test; 61 on the internet-based test). Information on the TOEFL may be obtained from Educational Testing Services, P.O. Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151, USA; telephone: 609-771-7100; fax: 610-290-8972; email: toefl@ets.org. Finally, international student applicants must submit evidence of financial resources adequate for all expenses during the period of undergraduate study. When all the necessary information has been received, the applicant will be notified by mail of the decision. International students who initially attend CCSU as exchange students may not automatically apply for admission or change their status from a J- to an F-visa; please consult the Center for International Education website for information. International students with transfer credit, please click here for the section on "Transfer Credit Evaluation" for additional information.

If accepted, international students must also submit a medical history form to University Health Service (phone: 860-832-1926, fax: 860-832-2579) and parental consent for medical treatment. CCSU's George R. Muirhead Center for International Education is available to assist international students while at CCSU. For more information, contact the George R. Muirhead Center for International Education, Barnard Hall, Room 124 (860-832-2040), fax 860-832-2047.

CCSU is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students.
