International & Foreign

As a College with one of the most diverse student bodies within the Northeastern United States, Old Westbury is proud to include among its undergraduate student body citizens from more than 20 countries and welcomes applications from other international students who can add to the rich mixture of ethnicities and cultures currently represented on campus.

Old Westbury welcomes applications from international students who have completed secondary education and are eligible to enroll in a university level program. A completed international application packet includes the following:

  • FSA-1 Personal Data Form (SUNY International Undergraduate Application)
  • FSA-2 Autobiographical Essay
  • FSA-3 English Language Proficiency
  • FSA-4 Foreign Student Financial Statement (certified by a bank official)
  • Official secondary school transcripts, marksheets, or official examination results and an official diploma or certificate
  • Official University or Post secondary transcripts from the institution attended
  • All credentials must be evaluated and translated by WES (World Education Services)

All applicants are required to take the TOEFL (Test as English as a Foreign Language) with a minimum score of 500 (paper exam) or 170-200 (computer exam). Applicants must also demonstrate adequate funding for the length of stay and meet living expenses.

Application deadlines are March 15th for admission to the fall semester and December 1st for admission to the spring semester. International applicants may be processed after this deadline on a space available basis. Accepted students will receive an acceptance letter and request for a tuition deposit ($50).
