International Student Admissions

International students are encouraged to apply for admission. Missouri College is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. All applicants must meet the same admission requirements as U.S. citizens. All documents should be accompanied by an English evaluation. Students whose native language is not English may be required to take the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) or demonstrate English proficiency through other measures established by the school. A score of at least 500 (paper-based test), 173 (computer- based test) or 61 (internet-based test) is required for admission.

To apply for an I-20, an affidavit of financial support should be submitted. Detailed information will be provided through our Admissions office. Coursework taken at a foreign institution* must be evaluated for equivalence to coursework taken at a United States institution. Missouri College accepts the evaluations of foreign course work from the following services, which charge applicants directly for their services:
