International Admission

Getting started at Cogswell as an international student

International students interested in long term study at Cogswell must complete the full application process.

1) Complete the Application 

Once you have submitted your online international application, you will receive an email from a college admission adviser who will help guide you through the rest of the process.

2) Submit Your Documents 

Below is a list of materials you will need to submit as a Cogswell freshmen international applicant. Cogswell currently accepts F1 visas only. Get started early to allow time to process required documents for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). International students may not enroll as part-time students. These documents can be submitted at any time to your advisor via email, standard mail, and in some cases, online.

3) Interview and Placement Exams 

After you've completed the online application and prepared your documents, you and your College Admission Advisor will need to arrange an interview. They will be happy to help answer any questions you have along the way.

Upon receipt of your acceptance letter, you will need to to forward your tuition before the first semester deadline. All tuition for each subsequent semester attended must be paid in full during that semester's registration.

International students will be required to take placement examinations  to assess the competency level of each subject. You will be required to maintain good academic standing at all times. Placement tests may be waived, see your advisor for more details.

All applicants will receive an acknowledgement of their admission status approximately two weeks after their file is complete and processed. Notification will include information regarding registration, academic advising, and enrollment agreement.

  1. Any application materials are false or misrepresented.
