Resources for International Universities

The best best place to start looking for information is on the university’s own website. Most universities will have their updated information on their website. Contact information is also on university websites and most universities will respond to phone calls or email within 2 or 3 business days.

Looking for some resources?

The Common Application
The Common Application is used by over 400 American Universities and can be accessed as a paper copy or an online application(recommended).      This is a standard online application form that requires all students to submit academic information, extracurricular information, and essays.  Students must also have their school profile and teacher reference letters submitted to the Common Application to complete their applications.  Students may increase their chances of receiving an offer of admission by selecting “Early Decision” or Early Action” on their university choices.  Please read what this may mean if you have applied to MORE than one university choice in the U.S.  Universities may still require SAT or ACT scores, other related essays or reference letters, and in some cases interview or auditions.
If a university is NOT a member of the Common Application, students must apply to the institution as directed by their website.
