International Admission Process

Warner has students from all over the world as part of our community, and we hope you’ll join us. In addition to meeting general admission requirements, international students must meet the following criteria:

1. Must demonstrate skills in the English language.   Those international students who have attended universities abroad and whose instruction was in the English language may show their skill through acceptable English grades documented on official transcripts. All others must take the ACT, SAT, or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The bulletin of information about the TOEFL may be obtained by writing to: TOEFL, Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08540. A score of 500 (paper), 173 (computer), or 61 (Internet) on the TOEFL is the minimum for admission to Warner University.

2. International applicants must have official transcripts sent to the University. Copies of all secondary and post-secondary transcripts, the General Certificate of Education (GCE), as well as the original documents themselves, results, diplomas, and other certificates not in the English language, must be translated. Secondary and post-secondary transcripts must be evaluated by an approved foreign credit evaluation service. Contact the Admissions Office at admissions@warner.edu for details.

3. International applicants must present the proper student visa and other necessary documents.

4. The International Student Certification of Finances  confirming coverage of all University, personal, and travel expenses for each academic year at Warner University is required.

5. International Students will pay the non-refundable $100.00 confirmation deposit and the non-refundable $100.00 I-20 processing fee ($200.00).  This is to be paid when the student is accepted to Warner University.

The student must be accepted before July 1 (fall semester) or October 1 (spring semester) to ensure that the I-20 is processed in a timely manner and for the student to enroll and attend classes.

As Warner University’s policy, ½ of the tuition/housing must be paid by July 15 (fall semester) or October 15 (spring semester). The remainder of the tuition/housing must be paid in full BEFORE moving on campus or attending classes.
