A student from another country must:

  1. Complete, sign, and submit an online admissions application.
  2. If English is not the primary language of the country, you must present evidence of language proficiency in English. There are three ways to present proficiency: 
    1. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL): Score 500 or higher on the paper version, 173 on the computer-based version, or 61 on the Internet-based version.
    2. English Language Testing System (IELTS): Score 5.5 or higher
    3. Intensive English Program (IEP): Score 460 or higher on the paper version, 140 on the computer-based version, or 48 on the Internet-based version on a TOEFL or a 5.0 or higher on an IELTS administered at a special testing center or international testing center. In addition to these minimum score requirements, the student must successfully complete a minimum of 12 weeks of study at an IEP approved by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. At least two-thirds of the 12 weeks must be instruction at an advanced level.
  3. Complete the native country’s requirements and provide third party transcript evaluation.  All secondary and post-secondary transcripts from a foreign institution must be officially evaluated.  We accept evaluations from WES, InCred, and SpanTran. (Credit hours earned at a United States college or university, admissibility is determined from secondary school info.)
  4. If transferring from a United States college or university, you must provide an official college or university transcripts and the F-1 Student Transfer Form. (If fewer than 24 credit hours earned, admissibility is determined from secondary school info.) (If transferring 23 credit hours or less, we don’t need requirement #2 (English Language Proficiency), but we will still require secondary school transcript info for NAIA conference purposes if you are an athlete.)
  5. Test scores such as ACT and/or SAT are optional but must officially be submitted through the ACT website or College Board.
  6. Certified bank statement showing a balance equivalent of 15,000 US dollars (less any scholarships). Bank statements with the balance can’t be older than 3 months from the date we receive the document.
  7. Affidavit of Financial Support with the signature of the owner of the back account. (If transferring from a U.S. institution, we only need an official transcript from the transfer institution.)
  8. The International Health Form must be filled out, signed, and stamped by a physician. USAO recommends that international students carry medical insurance.
