International Applicants

Applicants from Foreign Countries

In addition to all other application requirements, foreign applicants must also submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) if their native language is not English or if they have not graduated from an institution at which the curriculum is taught in English. The Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine recipient code for the TOEFL is 3499.

Financial Aid

First-year international students are not eligible for institutional financial aid. There are several private student loans for which international students may apply. The student must have a loan co-signer who is a United States citizen or permanent resident. Additional information may be found on the eduPASS website.
