INTERNATIONAL STUDENT POLICY
An international student is a student who is a citizen or a permanent resident of a country other than the United States. To be admitted as an international student, a person must do the following:
- Submit a completed Application for Admission form to the Student Services Department.
- Request that an official TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) report with a score of at least 500 on the paper-based test or at least 173 on the computer-based test be forwarded to the Student Services Department at the Tennessee Technology Center at Shelbyville. (The TOEFL is not administered by TTCS.)
- Submit a completed financial statement form.
- Submit evidence of high school graduation or the equivalent, or an official report of a comprehensive GED score of 45 or more, or an official EDP transcript indicating the 65 required competencies, or graduation from a college or university.
- Request that transcripts be forwarded to the Student Services Department from each educational institution previously attended. Applicants must furnish transcripts of all secondary school and college level studies accompanied by official English translations. The applicant is responsible for paying any cost for official translation of foreign language transcripts. Submit copies of appropriate examination certificates to the Student Services Department.
- All international students applying for admission pursuant to a student visa shall submit a certificate from a licensed physician or other qualified medical authority verifying freedom from tuberculosis within thirty days from the first day of classes, and failure to submit such certification shall result in denial of further enrollment or admission. In the event that a student either has tuberculosis or has potential tuberculosis requiring medical treatment, continued enrollment will be conditioned upon the determination by a licensed physician that further enrollment does not present a risk to others and upon the student’s compliance with any prescribed medical treatment program.
