  3. Meet Test Requirements
    International students must provide a score from the TOEFL (code is 6318). A minimum TOEFL score of 525 on the paper test, 197 on the computerized version or 70 on the Internet-based TOEFL (iBT) is required. The TOEFL may be substituted by the IELTS exam with a minimum score of 6.0 overall and a 5.5 minimum on any one test section. ACT or SAT scores are optional. (Note: if you are from an English-speaking country, the TOEFL requirement may be waived.)

  4. Provide Documentation of Sufficient Financial Resources
    The United States Department of Homeland Security regulations require international students to demonstrate the ability to finance their education prior to the release of their DHS Form I-20. The University of Jamestown will accept a dated bank statement with official signature.

  5. Provide Proof of Health Insurance
    Prior to your arrival to the University of Jamestown, you must provide proof of health insurance that will cover you here in the United States in case of a health emergency. If you are unsure about your current coverage, please consult with your provider.
