Grace International Students
International Students, welcome to Grace!
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.
It is critical to assess the cost of attending Grace College before beginning the application process:
- Financial assistance in the form of merit scholarships is available to all students who qualify.
- You must demonstrate educational funds you have available or funds from sponsor(s).
- Applicants must have at least a high school degree or the equivalent.
- As a Christian college, Grace College requires that all applicants abide by our community lifestyle agreement during their time studying on-campus.
- You must be a full-time student during the academic year at Grace College.
- All application materials must be complete, including the Declaration of Financial Support, before financial assistance can be considered.

Recommended Foreign Transcript Evaluators:
Once you have submitted your application for admission and we have received your official transcripts and ACT, SAT, TOEFL, or Duolingo English Test scores, your application for admission to Grace College will be complete and will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee. Grace College reserves the right to request additional information if needed in order to complete the evaluation. The Admissions Committee will provide notification regarding the status of your application. If you have any questions, contact the Grace College Admissions Office at (866) 974-7223.
Applicants receive one of three decision letters: admit, deny or defer (for additional information).
Provide a copy of your passport (and your dependents’ passports, if applicable).
To obtain the I-20 form (which is used to apply for your student visa), you must complete the full application process, be accepted to the college and fill out the Declaration of Financial Support or provide bank statements demonstrating financial resources to enroll. International students are considered for academic scholarships, but are expected to contribute a portion of annual college expenses. Upon confirmation of financial viability, Grace College will provide you with an I-20 form to assist with obtaining your student visa.
Once all other steps have been completed, a place in the class can be secured by submitting a $200 enrollment deposit by the May 1 reply date. (Housing assignments are prioritized by date received.)
