There is a no application fee for international students. In addition to completing all of the admissions requirements listed previously, international students must submit a translated, certified-true official copy of a high school transcript and TOEFL test score of at least 500 (paper) or 61 (internet). TOEFL test scores are not required for students from English-speaking countries or for students who have graduated from a US high school.
The official academic records must be reviewed and translated by a foreign credential evaluator service that is recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) and the American Translators Association (ATA). It is the applicants responsibility to obtain these services through the appropriate channels.
NCAD reserves the right to require ESL courses if deemed necessary. If the international student is accepted, the college will begin the required paperwork for the I-20 Visa. At this time, the international student must submit documentation that demonstrates his or her ability to pay for all tuition, fees, and living expenses for each academic year. The appropriate I-20 form will be processed after all documentation is satisfied. For more information on obtaining a student visa, visit the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services web site.
