International Requirements

Any student who is not an American Citizen or Green Card Holder should submit an international application. International students have some additional admissions requirements in their application process. Learn about the additional admissions requirements for international students below. 

International applicants must: 

  • Meet freshmen or transfer requirements for admissions. Please review the requirements for freshmen and transfer students. 
  • Submit an official evaluated high school or college-level transcript. Transcripts should be a course-by-course evaluation from a NACES approved company with the GPA included. All transcripts issued by a high school or college not located in the U.S. must be sent to a third-party evaluation company. Official school records must be translated into Egnlish and evaluated prior to being sent to the USCB Office of Admissions.

Application for USC Beaufort






  • Submit your official TOEFL, IELTS,DuoLingo or PTE Academic Test scores. This test is required for all international students, except those whose native language is English. The following countries are exempt from the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE requirement:

    American Samoa
    Canada (note: Quebec students must take the TOEFL)

    Grand Cayman
    New Zealand
    Sierra Leone
    United Kingdom







  • Submit the Certificate of Support with supplemental documentation. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services' regulations require universities to certify that all international students have sufficient funding to pursue a degree. The University of South Carolina Beaufort requires international applicants to submit this document in the admissions process to showcase financial resources to cover all expenses for their first academic year. All supplemental documentation must be in English and United States dollars (USD). 
  • Submit your ACT or SAT scores (optional). The upcoming academic year, Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, we are making Standardized Test scores (ACT or SAT) optional for admission. If you have taken the ACT or SAT and would like your scores to be considered as part of your admissions decision, you may submit them. 
  • Submit your Immunization Records. This document must be completely filled out by a doctor in your home country, or by a doctor who has your immunization records on file. If you are from a country that does not require these vaccines, and are not able to get the vaccines before you leave for school, you may get these vaccines here in the U.S. Proof of these vaccines is required before a student is allowed to attend classes on campus. 
  • Obtain a health insurance plan that meets University and minimum federal standards. Students will not be released to register for classes unless the certification is received for the period of time covered by the insurance.
