  • A TOEFL score of

    • Official post-secondary/university transcripts and exam reports (certified with original signatures or seals)
    • Certified English translations of all documents if they are not in English ( is our recommendation for these translations)

  • For a printable list of the documents required to complete your admission file, please see the application checklist.
  • It is also highly recommended that international students submit SAT I scores with their application for admission. The SAT exam is given in locations around the world several times a year. Students may obtain details of when the exam is administered and how to apply by contacting the nearest American Embassy or Consulate. Students should start planning a year in advance of the time they plan to begin studies at Goshen College to take the required TOEFL and SAT I exams and to prepare the other required documents for admission and financial aid consideration.

If you decide that Goshen could be your “dream-come-true” place, we invite you to apply for admission and become a part of Goshen’s global village.
