Additional Admission Information for International Students

Early completion of the application is crucial. International applicants should keep in mind the following priority deadlines for completed applications: for the fall semester the deadline is January 15; for the spring semester, it is November 1.

Original certified transcripts with grades from secondary school and college courses are required. These transcripts must be in the original language and accompanied by an English translation with an explanation of the marking system. Secondary school records must reflect academic achievement equivalent to the minimum for admission when converted to the American grading scale. A minimum g.p.a. of 3.00 is typically required of international students who wish to transfer from other colleges in the United States. A minimum of one full year of study in a parallel program reflecting a g.p.a. of 3.00 or higher is typically required of transfer applicants whose secondary school achievement falls below the standard required for freshman admission (see transfer credit policies).

It is also necessary to provide financial documentation after the point of admission, which indicates that the applicant's sponsor(s) has sufficient funding to pay for all educational and personal expenses for one year of study while in the United States. The amount considered as sufficient funding may vary from year to year. For forms and details, visit http://www.stonybrook.edu/admissions.
