Introduction

Applying to Fisher College

Fisher College actively seeks students from diverse backgrounds who have demonstrated the potential to graduate from Fisher College. Each application file is reviewed on an individual basis, and all submitted materials are taken into consideration.

International Students intending to enroll in the Spring Semester should apply by December 1st. Applicants for the Fall Semester should apply by July 1st.

Application credentials are reviewed regularly. Accepted students will be notified on a rolling basis. Students who may not meet admissions requirements will be notified after Fisher College has received all relevant information necessary to make a sound admissions decision.
  
 

Requirements

  1. A completed application form. We recommend that international students apply via the International Student Online Application.
  2. A $50 application fee.
  3. An official transcript sent directly from your secondary school. Photocopies of transcripts are not acceptable. Transcripts must be translated into English. If you are not able to provide an official, translated transcript, we recommend that you utilize the services of the Center for Educational Documentation (opens in new window), to provide Fisher College with appropriate documentation.
  4. Official results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or its equivalent. Fisher accepts a variety of other language examinations, such as:
    • Paper-based TOEFL (PbT)
    • Computer-based TOEFL (CbT)
    • Internet-based TOEFL (IbT)
    • IELTS exam
    • Cambridge PET exam
    • The STEP Eiken exam (Japan)
    • The ESPT exam (Korea)
    • iTEP Academics: The International Test of English Proficiency (iTEP) with a minimum score of Level 5 or higher. The iTEP score is valid for two years.

    The minimum TOEFL score required for direct acceptance is 61iBT. Students with lower scores may be conditionally accepted to Fisher, or be required to attend language development courses. Students take college-level courses at the discretion of their Academic Advisor. (The school code for Fisher College is 3391.)

  5. A notarized, current bank statement verifying that the student has a minimum of $50,000.00 U.S. Dollars in a cash account available for his or her use.

Most consulates around the world require the applicant to prove that he or she is able to pay for his or her entire program of study.
  6. Official college transcripts. If you intend to transfer from another college/university, you will need to forward official transcripts from that college as well as written course descriptions.

International students transferring their I-20 from another college or language school must submit a transfer release form and a copy of their I-20 from the last college attended. All transfer students must be in good academic standing, must owe no money to their previous college, and must not have any judicial or criminal complaints against them.
