International Students


International Students Admissions | USF Health Online

I-20 Documents


USF does not issue I-20 documents to international applicants enrolling in a certificate program. International students may pursue an online program from outside the U.S., without an I-20. Please note that immigration regulations do not allow international degree-seeking students to enroll in more than one on-line course per semester. You must make sure that adding an on-line certificate does not lead you to violate this regulation.

Transcripts


International students who do not hold the required degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution must submit translated transcripts, along with a credential evaluation from any National Association of Credential Evaluators, Inc. (NACES) approved agency certifying equivalency to the U.S. degree.

English Proficiency


Master's degree applicants who do not require a visa who are from countries where English is not the official language must demonstrate proficiency in English* in one of the following ways:

    • By providing scores of 79 or higher on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL iBT)
    • By providing a score of 6.5 or higher on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
    • By earning a score of 500 (or 153 after August 2011) on the GRE Verbal exam.
    • By earning a baccalaureate or higher degree at a regionally accredited institution in the U.S.
    • By earning a baccalaureate or higher degree at a foreign institution where English is the primary language of instruction (must be officially documented on transcript).

All foreign transcripts that are not in English must be accompanied by a certified English translation and a credential evaluation from any National Association of Credential Evaluators, Inc (NACES) or Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc. (AICE) approved agency certifying equivalency to the U.S. degree.
