I am an International Student, what else is necessary for my application?

As an international applicant, you are required to supply the following items in addition to the standard application:

  1. If you are from a country where English is not the official language you need to provide the results of an English Proficiency Examination. The official score from the TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is to be submitted. If you have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree from an accredited university in the United States the English Proficiency Examination will be waived.
  2. Transcript Evaluation: International transcripts must be evaluated by the World Evaluation Services (WES) Visit: www.wes.org . You will incur an expense for the WES Evaluation; therefore, the University of Hartford’s $50.00 application fee will be waived.
