International Student Admission
International students must meet federal immigration and college requirements before being admitted to Southwestern. International students who present Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores with a minimum score of 450 may be admitted to Southwestern.
Students must complete the International Application for Admission Form and submit it along with TOEFL scores and a financial statement to the Coordinator of International Student Programs before the I-20 and acceptance letter are issued. Students are also required to send any international transcripts to a third party evaluator for translation.
Southwestern provides a comprehensive array of services. Aside from the special orientation process designed specifically to familiarize our international students with the college and community, we offer personal and academic counseling, special tutoring services to help students progress in their courses, a mentor program that brings international students together with American conversation partners, and a bridge course (Writing 60: College Writing for International Students) designed to provide international students with writing practice in most disciplines. In addition, there is housing assistance, advice about immigration regulations, and activities and field trips which are periodically organized to acquaint our students with the recreational opportunities available in this scenic area.
