Entry requirements

  • High school transcript or official high school diploma for students with no college credit.
  • For international applicants with college credit obtained outside of the United States, Brenau University requires an official course-by-course foreign transcript evaluation from a NACES accredited organization.
  • Submit official test scores: see English language requirement information below. International student English language requirement: In addition to the regular freshman or transfer student admissions requirements, students whose native language is not English must submit proof of English proficiency. Proficiency in the English language can be proven through submission of a minimum of one of the following:
    • ACT English score of 19
    • SAT verbal score of 450
    • SAT evidence-based Reading and Writing score of 500
    • Test of English as a Modern Language (TOEFL) score of 497 (Paper based test)

    • or a grade of “C” or better in EH 101 & EH 102 from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university
  • English language placement: The Brenau English placement test will be administered to all students admitted on a student visa in order to place students in the appropriate English course. If the student has taken the ACT or SAT test, that score will be used to determine English placement.
  • Credential evaluation: Credential evaluations of transcripts in languages from countries other than the U.S. must be completed by a professional service and the student will bear the cost of this evaluation. Evaluations by an outside agency such as World Education Service or Education Credentials Evaluators are required to assure accuracy in determining U.S. equivalents, and the student will pay for that service. Information regarding these services may be obtained by contacting the admissions office.
  • Financial requirements: All international students, residential and commuting, must have sufficient funds to pay full university tuition fees, textbooks, living expenses, transportation expenses, health insurance, and other incidental expenses while attending a university in the United States. Documentary evidence of means of financial support must be provided to Brenau for matriculation purposes and issuance of the Form I-20. This evidence is also required by the United States Embassy or Consulate when applying for a student visa to enter this country.
