International Students

Welcome, International Students!

An international applicant is any applicant who is not a U.S. citizen or a permanent U.S. resident. If you are a U.S. citizen who currently lives outside the U.S., or if you are not a U.S. citizen but rather a permanent legal U.S. resident, you do not qualify as an international student.

How to apply

All Grace College applicants must submit official high school transcripts (or university transcripts for transfer applicants). The transcripts must come directly from your high school or university. Complete the top portion of the Transcript Request form. Send it to your high school principal or counselor (or university Registrar), who will complete the remainder of the form and submit it directly to the Grace College Admissions Office, along with your official transcripts. If you have attended another university, you will need to follow the same procedure with the Transcript Request form. The form is to be completed by the principal, counselor, or Registrar and returned with a copy of your official transcripts directly to the Grace College Admissions Office.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSCRIPT REQUEST FORM 
  • Submit SAT, ACT or TOEFL Scores

All applicants must submit an official copy of either SAT, ACT or TOEFL scores. An official copy of your scores may be obtained from your school or by request from www.act.org or www.sat.org. The Grace College code numbers are 1198 for the ACT and 1252 for the SAT.

  • Provide a copy of your passport (and your dependents’ passports, if applicable)
