International Undergraduate Students

International Students

You are considered to be an international student:

  • If you are not a citizen of the United States
  • If you are currently in the United States with a visa
  • If you have applied for permanent residency but have not been approved

All applicants who are not US citizens or US permanent residents at the time of application are considered international applicants. If you become a US citizen or permanent resident after you’ve applied to Alfred University, you may submit documentation of this change (a copy of your Certificate of Citizenship, Certificate of Naturalization, or Permanent Resident Card) to the Office of Admissions to update your citizenship status. US citizens and permanent residents, no matter where in the world they live or go to school, are not considered international applicants but will be reviewed for admission within the context of their school cohort.

International students should follow the procedures outlined on the pages listed below. These pages include special instructions and deadlines for international students. Before you apply we recommend that you review our special requirements for international students and our international student webpage.

Upon acceptance, in addition to the $300 deposit in U.S. dollars, international students are required to submit the following documents:

Evidence of Financial Support - The Department of Homeland Security requires Alfred University to verify that a student planning to study in the United States on a F-1 visa can provide financial evidence documenting sufficient funds for their student careers. To verify evidence of financial support, please submit the appropriate form below in order for the Committee on Admissions to make a decision on the application. The form is required to be submitted along with the application.
