Application Instructions for International Transfer Students

St. John Fisher College operates on a rolling admission plan. Applications are reviewed as they are received. A transfer application is complete once we have received:

  1. A completed application and $30 application fee. Apply online or fill out the Transfer Application [pdf]
  2. Official transcripts from all previously attended institutions. Course by course credit evaluation must be provided for college transcripts from an approved international transcript evaluation service such as World Education Services.
  3. Results of Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) if a student's first language is not English. The minimum acceptable score on the TOEFL is 550 on the paper-based exam, a 213 on the computer-based exam, or an 80 on the internet-based exam for undergraduate study. Results of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) are also accepted.  The minimum acceptable IELTS score is 6.5. Note: Foreign students who have received their associate degrees from institutions in the United States are exempt from the TOEFL and IELTS.
  4. Official high school transcripts for students who have completed less than 24 credit hours at the college level. If the transcript is not in English, it must include a translation and comprehensive course-by-course evaluation from an approved international transcript evaluation service such as the World Education Services.

Additional items required for Accepted International Applicants:

  • Accepted international applicants must submit a non-refundable enrollment deposit of US $300 payable to St. John Fisher College.
  • Accepted international applicants must complete and submit the New International Student I-20 Application [pdf] and the Statement of Financial Support/Certificate of Finances [pdf] documents certifying availability of adequate financial resources to cover a minimum of one year's financial expenses, which include tuition, room & board, fees, books, and miscellaneous expenses. Upon acceptance, international applicants will receive additional information regarding these specific documentation requirements.
  • The documentation submission deadline for international applicants is June 1 for fall admission (classes begin in September) and October 1 for spring admission (classes begin in January), unless currently in the U.S. in valid F-1 student status. Details and important timeline considerations for international applicants are available on the International Student Services site.
