    International Applicants

    In addition to the above listed requirements, international applicants must submit Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Applicants with a native language other than English are required to submit scores earned on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), designed to ascertain proficiency in English and administered in many overseas testing centers. Students who wish to take the test should write directly to: TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6151, Princeton, New Jersey 08541. For further information, go to TOEFL. The SAT or ACT are accepted in place of the TOEFL.

    All international applicants must submit official transcripts from all previous colleges and/or secondary schools. An estimate of expenses and Sponsor’s Guarantee Form must be submitted with the application. These forms are available upon request. All these must be received and approved before a student can be accepted to Lee University and issued an I-20 form. An international advisor works with all students in matters relating to admission and residency at Lee. Arrangements can be made for meeting a student upon arrival provided complete information is sent in advance to the Vice President for Enrollment.

    In order for the transfer work of international students to be applied to the Lee transcript, the transcript from the previous educational institution(s) must be evaluated by World Education Services (WES). Information concerning submitting a transcript for review can be found at World Education Services. The cost of this service is the responsibility of the student. If the transcript has not yet been evaluated by WES upon arrival at Lee for registration, an advisor will place the student in courses deemed appropriate. Upon Lee’s receipt of the WES evaluation, the student’s placement will be re-evaluated if during the registration period. If received after the registration period, the student will remain in the class as placed.
