International Students

Illinois College welcomes the interest of international students who desire to study on our campus. To be considered for admission the following items must be submitted:

  • All candidates for admission to Illinois College must submit an application for admission.
  • An official certified copy of all secondary school work translated into English with all courses/grades listed (an explanation of the grading system should accompany your academic record).
  • Secondary school report and essay or personal writing sample.
  • Students who are non-native English speakers must submit evidence of proficiency in the English Language by submitting PTE, GTEC, TOEFL, IELTS, ITEP, Duolingo, ACT or SAT scores. A complete listing of acceptable test scores may be found at

While the Admission Committee may find a student qualified for admission, the I-20 cannot be sent to students until they have assured the college that they have the necessary funds to finance their education at Illinois College. The I-20 will be sent when international students have submitted the “Illinois College Financial Questionnaire” and a copy of their bank statement. A completed health information form is required by the Illinois College Office of Health Services. International students are required to purchase health insurance through Illinois College (approximate cost $2,200 for 12 months of coverage).
