International Undergraduate Application Requirements

  • The completed application form.

  • Certified copies in English translation of secondary-level courses and grades, state or national examination results, and the appropriate diploma or certificate received in secondary school. The University highly recommends the use of the World Education Services Credential Evaluations so that we can best assess your candidacy.

International students for whom English is not the native language are required to take the TOEFL and, generally, a minimum score of 550 on the paper test, 83 on the Internet-based test, or 213 on the computer-based test is necessary to be considered for admission.

Those who are offered admission and plan to enroll must also submit:

  • A certified bank statement or affidavit of support documenting that adequate funds are available to pay the full educational and living expenses in the United States for each year of enrollment. Please note that limited academic scholarships, ranging in amount up to but not more than about one-third of the total budget of the educational and living costs, may be available to international applicants with especially strong academic credentials and TOEFL and SAT results. Email Grant Henry, international student coordinator, for more information.

Why do international students come to the Mount?

The Campus Community

With 83% of students living on campus, and a faculty to student ratio of 12:1, this is a small community where everyone helps each other.

Support Services

Our Center for Student Diversity helps to support all students on campus, but specifically underrepresented student populations.


The University offers numerous programs within our Schools of Business, Education, and Science and College of Liberal Arts. In addition, there are many opportunities to study abroad.


Centrally located between Baltimore and Washington D.C., yet being able to live in a rural, safe environment is a ideal location for many students.

International Graduate and Seminary Application Requirements

International graduate students must maintain a full-time graduate course load, a minimum of 9 credits in the fall and spring semesters. In addition to the requirements listed for admission to the individual graduate programs, international graduate students must also submit upon acceptance:
