International students should first determine if they will be applying as a First-Time Full-Time or Transfer applicant. In addition to submitting the standard application materials, the following information is required:

English Translation of official secondary school transcript

Please include the last three completed years of schooling at minimum and your senior year schedule. Senior grades will be requested if needed. If you are seeking transfer credit, we also require an official credential evaluation. We recommend World Education Services (WES) for your credential evaluation but will accept an evaluation from any National Association of Credential Evaluation Services member.

Official Test Scores

  • If English is not your first language or primary language of instruction, you will need to demonstrate English Proficiency by completing the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), IELTS, SAT, or ACT. The minimum official scores to be considered for admission are:
    • TOEFL: 550 on the paper examination; 213 on the internet examination; 80 on the iBT (with a minimum score of 20 in each section)
    • IELTS: 6.5
    • Duolingo: 100 or higher

Financial Information

  • Please be aware that international students are typically responsible for $25,000-$40,000 USD per year. If a family cannot realistically contribute this annual amount, it is unlikely McDaniel will be an affordable option. The documents below should accompany your application.
