Non-Immigrant International Student Admission

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University welcome international students. Currently there are approximately 140 students enrolled from 35 countries. The colleges are authorized under United States federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students.

In addition to fulfilling the admission requirements and completing the procedures for admission, international students whose first language is not English must prove their English language proficiency. An applicant's English proficiency level may be demonstrated by means of score reports of such exams as TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language); the Michigan Test; the British GCE (General Certificate of Education); the U.S. SAT I: Reasoning Test (Scholastic Assessment Test); the U.S. ACT (American College Test); the International Baccalaureate and other approved exams; by reports of results and level of completion in a U.S. intensive English language program; or at least one year of post secondary education in the United States which includes English composition.

All international students must have health insurance. If students are not included in their parents' insurance plan, they must subscribe to the colleges' group health insurance program (approximately $810 annually).
