International Students Admission
Admission decisions for international students are based on a combination of English proficiency, successful completion of courses leading to graduation, letters of recommendation, and proof of financial support.
Students who have attended schools where English has not been the primary language of instruction must show evidence of English proficiency through a score of 550 or higher on written test or 80 or higher on internet-based test on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), special courses in other institutions such as completion of the highest level of an Intensive English Language Center program, or other relevant experiences.
Entering freshmen must have graduated from a secondary institution in their home country and must provide original certified copies of their academic transcripts which have been translated into English. Transfer students must provide original certified copies of all college transcripts which have been translated into English. An international student who enrolls as a degree-seeking student at Southwestern and who has taken courses at colleges outside the United States must pay to have these credits evaluated through a transcript evaluation service approved by Southwestern College.
In addition, international students must submit a certified bank statement indicating that the student or the studentís sponsor has sufficient funds to meet the first yearís expenses, a personal statement about the studentís background, interests and personal accomplishments, and three letters of recommendation. If the student is being sponsored, a certified letter from the sponsor should be submitted indicating that the sponsor will be supporting the student during the studentís stay in the United States. If the student is sponsored by the studentís home government, the student should send a certified letter from the government indicating support and billing information.
General Board of Higher Education/Ministry - The United Methodist Church
There are many scholarships available from The United Methodist Church for students attending Southwestern College.
Each scholarhip has different requirements and deadlines. Students should keep updated on all scholarship information. Attending a private institution can be expensive, and if funding can be obtained from outside sources, every effort should be made to obtain those valuable resources.
