International Student Requirements

Patten University welcomes students from around the world who have attended high school or college.

Prior to applying for the required F-1 Visa, which permits students entry into the US, international students must submit a separate admission application with the required materials.

Since English is the language of instruction, international students from non-English speaking countries pursuing a degree from Patten University must meet all entrance requirements and demonstrate English language proficiency. Patten uses the “Test of English as a Foreign Language” (TOEFL) exam results as evidence of English proficiency. An official test score of 219 or higher is required on the CB-TOEFL (or 550 for the paper-based TOEFL) for admission.
