International students trying to gain admissions into a US college or university face higher barriers of entry compared to their US counterparts. International students are granted admissions based on grades, test scores (SAT/ACT), letters of recommendation, and English scores.

English is required to assure students will understand what’s being taught and can communicate if there are questions or concerns.
