How to Apply for College in USA for International Students
A certain level of English proficiency is a must to be considered eligible for admission to US universities. An international applicant needs to present the score of an English proficiency test while submitting their applications. Some of the most widely accepted English proficiency tests are IELTS (International English Language Testing System), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), Cambridge English Advanced (CAE), and Pearson Test of English (PTE). Each university sets its own criteria in terms of the test and the acceptable score.
If you don’t speak English, you must take an English course before appearing for these tests. You may want to share your goal with the course instructor so that they can advise you on which course to take and when you are ready for a test.
SAT vs ACT
Both SAT and ACT scores are widely used by US colleges for selection and scholarship decisions. The tests cover similar topics but differ in structure, scoring system, and to some extent, content.
The syllabus of SAT includes Reading, Writing and language, Mathematics, and Essay. The syllabus for ACT includes English, Reading, Mathematics, Science, and Essay. In both cases, the Essay is optional.
Both the exams aim to assess the college readiness of the students. Different students with a particular skill set and aptitude tend to do better in one over the other. Some experts say students with strong mathematical skills tend to do better in SAT, and students with strong English may score higher in the ACT. However, there is no conclusive evidence to support this claim.
The United States government issue two main types of student visas: F and M. You need to obtain a student visa before traveling to the US for the purpose of the study. After a SEVP (Student Exchange and Visitor Program) approved school accepts your application, you need to register on Student and Exchange Visitor Information System and pay the fees. The school then issues Form I-20 to the student. A student needs to furnish this form while applying for a student visa.
Reality of Scholarships
Several fully funded scholarships are available for international students in the US. Some scholarships are offered by the United States government, while others are offered by various universities and other organizations. Scholarships are awarded based on academic ability and financial requirements.
International Students and Ivy League
The US has 8 Ivy League schools that are known for their academic excellence. They are Princeton University, Columbia University, Harvard University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College, Brown University, and Cornell University. Besides, there are three other universities that are not technically Ivy League but enjoy similar status. These universities are MIT, CalTech, and Standford University.
These universities have a highly selective admission process and a low acceptance rate. However, a significant percentage of Ivy League students consists of international students. International students need to submit their SAT/ACT scores to be considered for a program. Ivy Universities offer financial assistance to international students and often follow a ‘need-blind’ selection process. That means the financial need doesn’t impact the admission decision.
