Freshman Applicants

Students must provide evidence that they have completed their secondary education within their home country (usually 12 years) and be entitled to acceptance into the colleges and universities in their home countries.

Transfer Applicants

Transfer Applicants from Universities Outside of the United States

Both Secondary and Post-Secondary transcripts will be used to determine general admissibility. A student's overall academic performance will be taken into consideration. Students whose post-secondary transcripts fail to show a satisfactory performance on the College level may be considered if their Secondary transcripts were of outstanding caliber.

Transfer Credit  

International students who have been accepted to Crown College who wish to transfer credit from colleges or universities outside the United States must provide Crown College with a transcript evaluation from EEI (Education Evaluators International, Inc. - www.educei.com) The form for completing the transcript evaluation can be downloaded at www.educei.com/images/EEI_Application_Form.pdf.  This process should be started as soon as the student receives his or her visa. The costs of the evaluation will be reimbursed by Crown College as long as the transfer evaluation is completed by the end of the student's first semester. If the transfer evaluation is not completed by the end of the first semester, the student will be responsible for the entire cost of the evaluation. The cost of the evaluation will be $205.00 U.S.

If a student has already completed a course-by-course evaluation from another National Association of Credential Evaluation Services - www.naces.org (NACES) member, he or she can submit this evaluation to the Crown College Registrar's Office.

Students may choose to complete the EEI evaluation as they apply. If the EEI evaluation is not done during the application process, students will be admitted as transfer students and will be given 3 years for a program length on their I-20. Class standing will be determined once Crown College has received the EEI evaluation. The sooner an EEI transcript evaluation has been completed, the sooner your academic advisor will have a proper understanding of what courses will transfer to Crown College and how those courses will be applied to your degree.

Transfer Applicants from US Colleges and Universities

International students in this category must meet the same criteria as our U.S. Transfer Students. Students must have an accumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher. Students who have earned less than 34 credits will need to supply Crown College with official secondary transcripts, as well. Courses that are not considered 'college level' courses (such as English as a Second Language) will not be included in the accumulative GPA when determining admissibility. Students transferring from a U.S. college or university who also possess credits from an institution outside of the United States will need to follow the credit evaluation guidelines outlined in the above section.

Accepted Students

Deposit

You may send your $150.00 U.S. Admissions Deposit payable to Crown College to secure your place for the fall or spring semester. The deposit reserves your housing and registration.

Because International Students' options for submitting payments vary widely, please contact to discuss the appropriate method of payment.

Financial Obligations

Applicants must have sufficient financial resources to cover all educational expenses including tuition, fees, room and board, books, insurance, supplies, personal expenses, and round-trip transportation.  All semester costs are payable at the beginning of each semester unless approved by Crown's Student Billing Office.

Student Visa

Once you are accepted at Crown you will be issued the I-20 document.  This document allows you to make an appointment for an interview at the U.S. Consulate or Embassy in the country where you reside.  The I-20 is not a guarantee of obtaining a visa to study in the U.S.  This is determined through your interview at the U.S. embassy or consulate.  We will provide information to you as you prepare for this important interview.  Once your visa is officially granted please let us know.

Complete All Forms

Complete all forms from the acceptance packet. Completion of these forms helps expedite the registration process and is required before any student can enroll or live on campus.

Registration

Every student attending Crown College is assigned to a Faculty Advisor. The International Student Advisor assists International students with language testing and registration. International students must be registered as full-time students (12 or more credits) in order to legally remain in the United States on a student visa.
