Requirements for International Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate applicants who do not have U.S. Citizenship or U.S. Permanent Residency must fulfill additional requirements in conjunction with their application to be considered for enrollment at UAH. These include the following:

  • Submit certified academic records in the original language with a certified English translation from each institution attended.
    • Academic records for high school education received outside of the U.S. must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service and should comprise a document-by-document evaluation and a grade point average for each institution attended.
    • Academic records for college education received outside of the U.S. must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service and should comprise a course-by-course description and a grade point average for each institution attended.
    • Applicants have the responsibility to contact the evaluation agency directly so that the evaluation agency can send the official evaluation report to UAH; copies will not be accepted by UAH. Acceptable evaluation services are as follows:

      SAT/ACT scores are not required for international undergraduate applicants. If available, however, you may submit your scores to determine any scholarship eligibility.
  • Meet UAH’s English proficiency requirements. If English is your native language (the language used in the home where you were raised, in the schools where you were educated, and in daily business), you are NOT required to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score.

    Graduates from an accredited university in the USA with a bachelor's degree or higher are not required to submit a TOEFL or IELTS score.

If you are an F1 or J1 student, you must also do the following:

  • Submit an affidavit of financial support for $37,772 and original documents (such as official bank letter) that prove that you or your sponsor has access to fluid funds sufficient to cover at least one year's tuition and living expenses.
