To apply to Naropa as an international applicant, applicants must submit all of the undergraduate admissions requirements or graduate admissions requirements. In addition to these general admission requirements, international applicants must also complete the following international applicant admissions requirements:
International applicants must document their English language proficiency by submitting scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) tests. Applicants must earn the following required scores:
Exceptions are granted for applicants from countries where English is one of the official national languages, or when English was the primary language of their previous schooling.
Undergraduate and graduate applicants must submit all required academic records from non-U.S. schools to a NACES-recognized agency for evaluation, regardless of country citizenship. Only after the transcript evaluations have been received and reviewed by the Office of Admissions will Naropa consider an offer of full acceptance, as well as issue the required documents to obtain your student visa.
It is required that your records be sent directly from your school to the evaluating agency. It is the student’s responsibility to request and ensure the delivery of the records to the agency. Agencies may have different requirements for how documents are to be delivered, so please be sure to double-check the agency’s requirements. These requirements are usually listed on the agency’s website.
If your school will not mail your records to the agency, you will need to request that the university deliver them to you in an unopened and sealed official envelope. Do not open the envelope your school mails to; if you do, it will no longer be considered official. Insert the unopened official transcript into a new envelope and mail it to your chosen evaluation agency.
If you have questions about this process, please contact the evaluation agency for assistance. Naropa cannot help with this part of the process.
Please attend to all above steps as soon as possible prior to the start of the term to which you have applied. Immigration-related processes can take as long as 6-10 weeks.
