A significant number of international students—from more than seventy-five countries—helps make our campus rich with various languages, cultures and heritages. To make the transition for international students easier, we offer to them a warm welcome, along with assistance in the way of programs information.
Same as for all students
An international student applicant is expected to have above average grades in secondary school and college, if applicable and on the SAT or ACT. The typical TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score for admitted international students is 100 on the Internet-based exam, 250 on the computer-based exam and 600 on the paper-based TOEFL. We recommend a score of at least 7.5 on IELTS (International English Language Testing System).
A letter of acceptance and a Form I-20 or IAP-66 from the University division to which you seek admission.
Please note that there are no state, federal, or institutional financial aid resources for international undergraduate students. Therefore, international students must show on the FIF that they have funds available. They only have to verify funding for the first year.
As an international applicant, you are required to certify that you have sufficient funds to cover your expenses while attending Emory University. You will need to download a copy of the financial certification form (FIF), which should be completed and returned to the Office of Admission. (We also will accept a note or statement from your bank or financial institution as proof of sufficient funding.)
Each international student is required by U.S. Immigration Laws to register as a full-time student each semester, except the summer term.
Foreign students come to the United States under regulations supervised by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service.
