INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADMISSIONS PROCEDURES

Acceptance for Admissions to Cloud County Community College is at the discretion of the Principle Designated School Official (PDSO) and/or the Designated School Official (DSO).

1. Complete the Application for Admissions.

2. Every International Student requirement must be submitted. A COMPLETE packet of documents must be scanned and emailed to admit@cloud.edu. In the subject line of the email, you must include the student’s full name and anticipated semester and year of attendance. Failure to submit the completed packet may delay the Acceptance processes.

**REQUIREMENTS

  • -An official copy of high school diploma and/or matriculation certificate and official copies of complete high school transcripts.
  • -Official test scores demonstrating proficiency in both oral and written use of the English language. A score of 500 (paper based test or PBT), 173 (computer based test or cBT) or 61 (Internet based test or iBT) on the TOEFL Examination is the minimum requirement for admission subject to the following exceptions:

-548 or higher (PBT), 210 or higher (cBT), or 79 or higher (iBT), will not be required to enroll in ESL courses.

-500-547 (PBT), 173-209 (cBT), or 61-78 (iBT) will be required to successfully complete one semester of ESL coursework (ESL II).

-410-499 (PBT), 100-172 (cBT), or 40-60 (iBT) will be required to successfully complete two semesters of ESL coursework (ESL I & ESL II).

  • -A completed statement of financial support, signed by both a financial sponsor (usually a parent or legal guardian) and by the student.
  • -A certified bank statement dated within six months of the start of classes showing the equivalent of $11,000 USD. This verifies that the sponsor has sufficient funds for sponsoring one year of study at Cloud. This is the estimated one year cost for tuition, books, fees, housing and living expenses.
  • -Each international student must have proof of health insurance. All international students must purchase a plan from the college's agreed upon options. (See policy E7)

After these steps are completed, the Principal Designated School Official (PDSO) and/or the Designated School Official (DSO) will review the contents and make a decision regarding the student’s admission. If the decision is favorable, an I-20 form and official letter of admission will be mailed directly to the student. These documents will allow the student to apply to the nearest U.S. Consular Office for an F-1 non-immigrant student visa. Once the visa has been obtained, the student will be permitted to enter the United States and begin full-time studies at CCCC.

3. Complete the Housing Application
