INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADMISSION
International students must comply with the basic admission requirements of the College, which are based upon merit and academic credentials (i.e. college preparation, grade point average, and/or standardized test scores of each student). In addition to regular admission, international students seeking F-1 student visa must comply with the following additional requirements:
English Language Requirements
If your native language is not English, students must submit a qualifying TOEFL, IELTS, or MELAB score or proof of satisfactory completion of a recognized intensive language program. Minimum score for TOEFL (525 PBT, 196 CBT, and 70+ IBT), IELTS (5.5+), MELAB (73+) will be acceptable.
Examinations are readily available in centers located abroad. When making arrangements for either examination, please request that test results be forwarded to The University Of Justice And Wisdom, Office of Recruitment and Enrollment, Garden City, MI 48135 USA.
The English language requirement may be waived if an applicant graduated from a U.S. high school within the last two calendar years, or transferred in college English from another U.S. institution.
Conditional Admission based on English Language Requirements
Students who meet the regular admission standards, but do not have the satisfactory score required of the TOEFL, IELTS, MELAB, or ESL certificate will receive conditional admission. This process is reviewed case by case. These students will be required to successfully complete an English as a Second Language (ESL) program before regular admission. The University Of Justice And Wisdom has partnered with Language Center International (LCI), which will allow students to pursue academic and intensive language programs concurrently. In the event the student is not passing successfully, we reserve the right to rescind on the agreement and encourage the student to transfer to ESL training full-time.
Official Transcripts (Translation and Evaluation)
In support of the application for admission, an international student must submit a certified translation of an official transcript, course-by-course evaluation and recommendation for admission from a reputable international credential evaluation service. The University Of Justice And Wisdom only accepts evaluations processed by members of NACES. The website for NACES is: http://www.naces.org/members.htm.
Statement of Finances
An international student must be able to prove that sufficient funds are available to meet all expenses as well as for vacation periods. A Statement of Finances and an original copy of the bank statement are therefore required and must accompany the application for admission. Students may submit a combination of scholarship, sponsorship, and bank statements to equal a total of one full year of tuition, housing and related expenses.
If you are being sponsored by the following: your government, the U.S. government, or by a relative or friend, this must be stated and the person responsible for payment of your educational and personal expenses must sign the statement. The Statement of Finances must be notarized in order to be considered valid by the College.
The University Of Justice And Wisdom does not provide financial aid for international students. However, to promote diversity, the College does provide academic scholarships to all qualified students regardless of citizenship.
Certificate of Health Insurance
All international students are required to purchase a health insurance policy that provides for full hospital and medical coverage during their entire stay in this country as a student. A receipt, which shows payment of premiums, must be presented to the Primary Designated School Official (PDSO, or DSO) within 30 days of the start of the semester.
All materials are highly recommended to be submitted in sufficient time to allow for all processing to ensure a timely appointment set with the local U.S. Embassy.
Issuance of I-20 Document
Upon the completion and successful submission of all documents, an I-20 will be issued to the student by the Primary Designated School Official (PDSO, or DSO) located in the Office of International Programs. In the event you have additional questions, the Director of International Programs can answer questions related questions. If you have additional questions or concerns related to the I-20 process, please contact the Office of International Programs.
