Visiting International Students Enrolled at Another U.S. Institution

The Catholic University of America is a globally engaged university with a dynamic Centre for Global Education which provides a variety of support services for international students. Most international students enrolled at other U.S. institutions are eligible to take summer courses without changing their nonimmigrant status.  

International students follow the same procedures as visiting students (above), but must also show proof of English language proficiency either through TOEFL scores or IELTS equivalents (80-Internet-based exam; 230-computer-based exam; 550-paper-based exam).
