International Admission: Criteria

Admission of international students is based on two factors: meeting the academic criteria for admissions and English language proficiency. Although the guarantee of sufficient financial resources to meet the cost of attendance is essential to maintaining one’s respective status; it does not solely determine admissions into Hunter College. For purposes of admission, an international student is defined as an applicant who currently holds a student (F-1) or Exchange visitor (J-1) visa or seeks to change such an immigration status upon enrollment. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires documentation of financial support before approving the issuance of a F-1 or J-1 Exchange Visitor status within the United States (if the admitted student is within the United States) and the State Department reviews financial status and substantial home ties of the applicant before issuing a visa, if the admitted student is overseas.
