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 Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) 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. 

Applicants are responsible for the payment of all tuition and fees at the time of registration. Hunter College does not provide financial assistance to international students; they must be in a position to finance tuition, fees, room and board, insurance, books and incidental expenses. The estimated cost is $41,247 per year for undergraduate students and $41,649 and for graduate level students and is subject to change. Hunter College does not make housing arrangements for students; it is essential that students be prepared to make their own housing arrangements, preferably before pre-departure or upon arrival. Admitted undergraduate students may visit for more housing information. 

International Students are not eligible to apply for fully online or hybrid (online and in class) programs at the College; this includes the Undergraduate RN to BSN Nursing Program.
