International Admissions Requirements

Requirements for Admission
In order to be best prepared to take full advantage of St. Lawrence University's liberal arts curriculum, you should have a broad preparation at the secondary school level. Competitive candidates for admission typically present:

  • four years of English;
  • three years of sciences;
  • three years of social studies;
  • three years of mathematics;
  • additional years of study in the areas of your greatest interest; and
  • work in other areas as determined by the requirements of your secondary school.

Testing Requirements
International applicants must submit SAT scores in order to be considered for admissions. If SATs are not offered in your home country, then TOEFL scores may be submitted instead. Please indicate St. Lawrence University as a recipient institution for scores when registering for exams. Our institutional code for both the SAT and TOEFL is 2805.

Extracurricular Involvement
Life outside of the classroom is just as important to our student culture and campus as life inside the classroom. We are looking for students who are passionate about clubs and organizations, outdoor activities, volunteer opportunities, travel programs, athletic involvement and more. Share this involvement and your experiences with us in your application.

Financial Aid Required Documents
All international students are required to submit the International Student Certification of Finances (COF). This is the only form required for the international financial aid process.
