International Admission Requirements 

The University of Holy Cross welcomes applicants from other countries. The UHC Catalog states that the University is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students who must have all official transcripts evaluated by an international student transcript evaluation agency and have results forwarded to the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs.

To be considered for admission to the University, international applicants must submit all the following items six months before the next semester:

  1. a completed application for admission
  2. official transcripts from each secondary and post-secondary institution attended (Note: transcripts must be translated by an evaluation agency. See the Office of Admissions for list of companies)
  3. official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum paper-based TOEFL score of 500. (The conditions of admission, as stated elsewhere in the UHC Catalog, also apply to international applicants.)
  4. a statement and supporting evidence of financial resources, as required by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service; and
  5. completed the immunization requirement.

For complete information and assistance in applying for admission to the University, international applicants should contact the Office of Admissions.
