Required Documents for Admission
Please submit an official transcript in English to Concord University’s Office of Admissions. If your school or institution cannot provide you with an English transcript please consider one of the following options: ECE (Education Credential Evaluators) or WES (World Education Services). If you were only given one official transcript from your home institution, please provide a letter stating this in the application package you mail to Concord University and we will be able to return your transcript after an admission decision is made.
Secondary and Post-Secondary Transcripts
For freshman level applicants please provide your secondary transcripts in English. For those students who have attended University level courses please submit your University transcripts in English accompanied by a WES or ECE transcript Evaluation.
No High School or University Attendance
If you are living in the United States and have never attended high school or university and wish to improve your English, you should submit an application and email our International Admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will help you bypass the requirement for a transcript.
*Facsimiles, scanned and photocopied documents will not be accepted.
Documents Required to Obtain Form I-20
Form I-20 is the document that U.S. schools issue for a student to obtain an F-1 student visa. In order to obtain an I-20 a student must be offered admission and prove they can pay for one year of tuition and living expenses at their intended institution.
For most students a letter or statement from a bank that lists a specific amount of liquid assets will be enough to obtain an I-20. A financial statement should list a minimum balance of $14,000 minus any scholarships or financial aid offered to a student. Financial information must be no older than 6 months because finances can drastically change. Only official original documents will be accepted. *Facsimiles, scanned and photocopied documents will not be accepted.
Affidavit of Support
An affidavit of support is required only for those students who have a financial sponsor. This sponsor can be from an American citizen, foreign embassy, business or NGO. The affidavit must be signed by the person listed as the sponsor and officially notarized and stamped as a true document. The affidavit must state the sponsor’s willingness to support $15,292 USD per academic year to the applicant and the applicant must be named. True copies are needed with notarization. Concord University does not accept facsimiles (faxes) or scanned copies of documents. We accept documents that have been officially notarized as a true document. The Affidavit of Support must list the $15,292 USD required to pay for one full year minus any scholarships or aid that Concord University has awarded.
