International applicants for graduate programs must complete the International Student Application for Admission in addition to applying to a specific graduate program.
You must also apply to your desired program. Visit the How to Apply page for more information.
The program application fee for all applicants is $35 — there is no additional fee for international applicants. Payment must be made by check drawn on a U.S. bank or international money order in U.S. dollars, marked clearly with your name. Please make check payable to St. Catherine University. Do not send currency or a postal order.
We require all applicants to provide proof of graduation from a post-secondary institution, with records of coursework completed and grades/levels achieved.
All documents must be original or certified photocopies. Any document in a language other than English must be accompanied by an official English translation completed by a certified, professional translator.
Transcripts of work completed in the United States must be mailed directly from the U.S. institution to the Office of Graduate Admission.
For international applicants we require an official evaluation of foreign credentials by World Education Services.
If your native language is not English, we require you to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The TOEFL college code for St. Catherine University is 6105. A minimum score of 600 on the paper-based exam, 100 on the iBT or 250 on the computer-based exam is required for admission.
The U.S. government requires all applicants to provide proof of ability to pay tuition and living expenses before the University can issue forms necessary to obtain a visa. All applicants should complete the Certification of Finances form. Students applying for financial aid must also complete that application form.
Please submit all of these documents to the Office of Graduate Admission. The admission committee will not review your application until we have received all of the required documents.
