Admission as an International Student
To be admitted, international students must submit to Undergraduate Admissions in the Office of Enrollment Services: (1) the Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship Application; (2) official high school transcript with an English translation when applicable; (3) evidence of proficiency in the English language as demonstrated by a minimum score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), a minimum score of 5.0 on the IELTS, or a minimum score of 82 on the Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency; (4) official verification of financial resources; and (5) a one-time $30 undergraduate application fee. International students should apply at least four months before the semester or term of enrollment. To assist in the proper placement of students in the areas of English, mathematics, science and social studies, all entering freshmen must take the ACT exam upon arrival unless valid ACT or SAT scores are on file. Entering transfer students with fewer than 24 semester hours of credit completed may be asked to take the ACT exam for the same reasons. Students with ACT subscores below 18 in English, 19 in mathematics, or 20 in reading must take one or more developmental classes in each subject to prepare for success in advanced coursework.
Students transferring to the University from an accredited institution of higher education in the United States, must submit: (1) the Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship Application; (2) the Morehead State University Transfer Form available from International Student Services; (3) an official transcript from the institution from which they are transferring; (4) official verification of financial resources; and (5) a one-time $30 undergraduate application fee.
Transfer of Credits. Credits earned from international institutions will be considered only after they have been evaluated by the World Education Services, Inc., Web site: www.wes.org, mailing address: P.O. Box 11623, Chicago, IL 60611-0623, e-mail: email@example.com. It is the student's responsibility to contact the agency and pay all service fees.
Students who have earned fewer than 24 semester hours must submit ACT or SAT scores and high school and college transcripts to facilitate appropriate advising and placement.
