Important Information for International Students

  • In order to receive transfer credits and/or determine US degree equivalency, a course by course evaluation is required. This evaluation must be done by a credential evaluation agency approved by St. Catherine University, such as World Education Services (wes.org). St. Catherine University reserves the right to render final decision regarding transfer of credits.
  • Specific requirements will depend on where you attended school outside of the United States. Some students may be required to complete an official state GED for the high school requirement. St. Catherine University reserves the right to determine requirements needed for an admission decision.
  • It may take longer to obtain your international documents, so we recommend that you begin your application process 6-9 months before beginning your studies at St. Kate’s.

Applicants for whom English is a second language may be required to take the English Assessment Test at St. Catherine University. TOEFL or IELTS scores may be submitted if either test has already been taken.

Any document in a language other than English must be accompanied by an English translation from a certified translator. Applicants are not allowed to translate their own documents.
