International Students  
This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll international students. Citizens from other countries are admitted to SCI-Arc on exactly the same basis as citizens of the United States. All admissions application materials must be submitted in English. Applicants who have attended or are attending an educational institution outside of the United States (US) are required to have their transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES), our preferred provider, or by another member of the National Association of Credit Evaluation Services (NACES) to determine the equivalence of their education to the United States educational system.

English proficiency
All international students applying from non-English speaking countries are required to submit official test scores from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). The minimum score requirement is ninety two (92) for the internet-based TOEFL, or a (7.0 ) band score for the IELTS. All test score reports must be uploaded directly to SlideRoom no later than the appropriate application deadline. SCI-Arc’s TOEFL School Code is 7802.

Students who have completed a minimum of two years of formal instruction at an institution where English is the primary language of instruction or are citizens of the following countries: Canada (excluding Quebec) Australia, Ireland, United Kingdom, are eligible to waive this requirement. Only test scores completed within the past two years will be accepted. To register for the TOEFL and/or IELTS exam, please visit www.toefl.org or www.ielts.org.

If accepted to SCI-Arc, students whose TOEFL/IELTS test scores do not meet our minimum requirement or did not submit to us an official TOEFL/IELTS test score by the required application deadline will be required to enroll in SCI-Arc’s four ( 4) week summer ESL workshop prior to the start of their program. Accepted students whose TOEFL/IELTS test scores met the minimum requirement or who have completed two or more years of formal educational instruction at a school where English is the primary language of instruction will be contacted by SCI-Arc’s ESL faculty by phone for a further evaluation of their English language skills. Students whose current level of English language skills does not meet our minimum requirement will be required to enroll in SCI-Arc’s four (4) week ESL workshop prior to the start of their program in the fall.
