This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien 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. Transcripts in English translation are accepted.
All international students, with the exception of those who have completed their secondary education in an English-speaking school or those who have completed at least two years of study at an English-speaking university, are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). The minimum score requirement is 90 on the internet-based TOEFL, 583 on the paper-based TOEFL, or a 6.5 band score on the IELTS. If accepted to SCI-Arc, students whose 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 4 week summer ESL workshop prior to the start of their program.
Accepted students whose TOEFL/IELTS test scores met the minimum requirement 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.
