Willkommen, Bienvenue, Benvenuto...
Applicants from foreign countries are encouraged to submit their completed applications as early as possible. It is of paramount importance when applying that the International Students Supplement be completed and all required documentation be attached. Following these procedures will expedite the processing of Admissions Applications. This will give admitted applicants ample time for Immigration Procedures.
The following items may be required of international applicants in addition to the application. Please read the following descriptions carefully to determine whether these additional items are applicable.
- English Language Proficiency Testing: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing (IELTS)
If English is not your first language and your undergraduate and/or graduate degree was obtained in a country where English is not the official language, you will be required to submit an official TOEFL or IELTS score. These scores are only valid for 2 years. If you are submitting TOEFL scores, you may request that your score be sent directly to Baruch College by using the code 2027, or selecting Baruch College from the list of institutions provided. For more information visit www.toefl.org or e-mail email@example.com. If you are submitting IELTS scores, make sure to list Baruch College, School of Public Affairs as a score recipient or contact the Test Center that issued your Test Report Form. For more information visit www.ielts.org.
- Transcripts & Translations
We require that you submit your original official transcripts still sealed in the envelope provided to you by your college as well as original letters of recommendation. If your letters of recommendation are written in a language other than English, a Certified Translation should accompany them. Your undergraduate/graduate degree must be recognized as equal to a regionally accredited U.S. Bachelor's or Master's Degree. This is especially significant when applying for the GRE waiver, where obtaining an equivalent GPA or Master's Degree is critical. We do not accept transcript evaluations in lieu of official transcripts.
- Application for F-1 and J-1 Visa and Financial Documentation
In order to obtain a F-1 Student Visa or a J-1 Exchange Student Visa, please complete the International Student Supplement and submit all required documentation. These include a Declaration and Certification of Finances and an Affidavit of Support, among other items. For more information about applying for student visas, please visit the International Student Services Center website at http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/studentaffairs/issc/ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
