International students admitted to Goshen College

Goshen College is a “home away from home” for dozens of international students every year. With students from over 22 countries, Goshen feels more like a global village than a college campus.

The steps to apply to Goshen College for international students is based on student type. Please complete the steps under your student type:

International first-years (if you have never studied at any university before)

Students must submit the following materials to be considered for admission to Goshen College:

 

  1. Complete the application. You have two different options:
    Go here to complete an existing application.
  2. Secondary school transcripts evaluated through INCRED or WES. Students are responsible for any fees associated with the credential evaluation.
    • For INCRED, select the appropriate option: Basic or Course-by-Course. If you do not plan on receiving U.S. credits, select the Basic Evaluation. If you have University or Post-Secondary credit to transfer, you’ll select the Course-by-Course Evaluation. Designate Goshen College as the recipient.
    • For WES, select the WES ICAP Course-by-Course (with GPA & course-levels) option. Designate Goshen College as the recipient.
  3. Test scores
    • If English is NOT your primary language, you must submit official English Assessment scores (TOEFL, IELTS). The official/original or certified copy of the TOEFL/IELTS exam must be submitted. The institutional code number for Goshen College is 1251.
    • If English is your primary language, you must submit official SAT 1/ACT scores. Goshen’s SAT code is 1251 and ACT code is 1196
  4. Copy of the first page of your passport.
  5. A completed certificate of financial responsibility. This form needs to reflect that you have at least $25,000 USD available in funding.
  6. Certified bank statements that reflect availability of funding.
    • A student must have $25,000 USD available in funding if they are to be admitted to GC.
    • If a student has a sponsor(s), then the sponsor must submit a certified bank statement and sponsor letter as well.

Once students are admitted to Goshen College, they must submit a $200 USD nonrefundable deposit. This deposit will go towards what they owe for the first semester.  This payment, and all subsequent payments, will be made to Goshen College through the service Flywire. Students will receive their I-20 after a deposit has been made and after they have received a Financial Aid Notification from Goshen College.

Admitted international students must also abide by the International Student Enrollment Policy, which states that students must pay Goshen College the amount listed on their I-20 as “personal funds” by August 1st of their first semester at GC, and provide payment in full for any direct costs three weeks before the bill due date of each subsequent semester. If payment is not made, the student may be withdrawn from Goshen College and have their I-20 revoked.
