International Application and Financial Aid Deadlines

Preferred Application Deadlines

Fall semester (August-December): April 1

Spring semester (January-May): November 15

Applications may be considered after these dates on a space-available basis; contact Director of International Admission, CSB/SJU, Collegeville, MN 56321-7155. Tel: 320-363-2190 or FAX: 320-363-3206 or e-mail ryoung@csbsju.edu

International applicants are considered for partial tuition scholarships. Scholarships are awarded based on academic and extra-curricular achievement and financial need. These scholarships include the Regents', Trustees', President's and Dean's scholarships as outlined in the Financial Aid section. Part-time on-campus student employment is also available. International students may also apply for full-time summer employment opportunities on the two campuses following their first year of study and each succeeding year for a total of three years maximum. On-campus housing and meals are available during the four summer months (May, June, July, August) at reasonable rates. Early application for summer employment, campus housing and meals are encouraged as the colleges cannot guarantee these special arrangements for all international students who wish to remain on campus during the summer. Undergraduate summer classes are not offered at either college.

All international applicants must complete the "Certificate of Finances" form at the same time as applying for admission and financial aid. Applications will not be processed until this form is received, along with other documentation of finance forms, affidavit’s of support and/or bank statements. A SEVIS I-20 form will be issued to secure your student visa upon receipt of the $500 advance deposit and your final decision to accept our offer of admission and financial aid (if offered). Further instructions pertaining to enrollment, on-campus housing and course registration will be made available as soon after your final decision is made. A second confirming deposit of $2,500 is due June 1 for the first semester (August); December 1 for spring semester (January). It is recommended that international candidates apply for the fall semester (August); only a very limited number of openings are held for spring semester (January).
