International students bring a variety of cultures to enrich the college community and help to prepare all students for the challenges of an increasingly interdependent world.
All persons seeking admission holding non-permanent visas will be processed as International Students. Applicants for F-1 student visas, or F-1 visa students transferring from a high school, college, or university in the United States, must submit a completed International Student Application Form available online.
All International Students must follow the guidelines for Texas Success Initiative (TSI) as determined by Texas State law. International Student applicants not completing college-level courses at a United States college or university are required to take the Accuplacer, ASSET, or THEA examinations before the start of the first (1) semester of enrollment. A student who fails any one (1) of three (3) areas (reading, math, or writing) may enroll in some program courses but may also be required to enroll in developmental courses as needed.
All persons seeking admission holding non-permanent visas will be processed as International Students.
