Schreiner University welcomes students from all areas of the world and we look forward to helping you through the admission process. Applicants whose country of citizenship is not the United States of America are considered international students.
Schreiner University does not offer English as a second language; therefore, students must provide proof of adequate command of the English language at the time they apply to Schreiner University.
Required GPA is 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 grade scale.
A properly completed Certification of Finances form that indicates the amount of funds available for the student to attend college, in US dollars. This must be signed by a proper bank official.
Official test scores indicating the English language proficiency. This requirement may be satisfied by T.O.E.F.L. or completion of level 109 at an ESL Language Center. This may also be waived based on SAT or ACT scores.
Required SAT score is 880 or higher, or ACT score is 17 or higher
A one-page handwritten essay titled “Why I want to attend college in the United States.”
When possible, submit either an ACT or SAT test score.
Once all the documents are received by the Office of Admission and Financial Aid, the student can expect a decision soon.
Admitted students will receive, by return mail, an acceptance letter and Certification of Finance form. The form 1-20 will be sent to the admitted student as soon as half the total cost of attendance for one year is on deposit at Schreiner University (in US dollars). This amount will be listed on your personal acceptance letter.
Before scheduling an appointment with the Embassy to apply for the student visa, you are required to pay a SEVIS 1-901 processing fee (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System) in the amount of $100 USD directly to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.
