According to federal law, the college may enroll nonimmigrant alien students, or international students with an F-1 Visa. Please refer to International Student Admissions at www.frontrange.edu/international.
International students must complete the following procedures to be admitted to the college:
- Submit a completed Application for Admission, Supplemental Information Form, and Affidavit of Financial Support document.
- Submit one English translated copy of:
- High school transcript indicating completion or graduation date
- College transcript from any other college or university attended
- Submit certified documentation of English proficiency as indicated by:
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 153 on the computer based exam (FRCC code is 4119), or Internet Based Test (IBT) score of 53, or
- International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher, or
- Other approved exceptions (i.e. English as a Second Language programs)
- Submit the Affidavit of Financial Support document, and a statement of the student’s or the sponsor’s financial resources in United States currency. The statement must show minimum funds of US $20,000 deposited in a financial institution to cover expenses for each academic year, and be notarized by an official of the financial institution. Arrangement for payment of tuition and fees must be made with the campus cashier by the payment deadline. Students sponsored by foreign governments must submit a valid authorization. While the college bills approved third parties for tuition and fees, international students are ultimately responsible for payment of all tuition and fees.
To be considered for admission, international students must submit all materials to the Office of Admissions and Records by these deadlines:
Out of Country
- Summer Semester – April 15
- Fall Semester – June 15
- Spring Semester – November 15
- Summer Semester – May 1
- Fall Semester – August 1
- Spring Semester – December 15
After materials are reviewed and approved, the college issues the United States Immigration Form I-20. Tuition and fees for nonimmigrant alien students are approximately $10,000 for full-time enrollment per academic year. Students need approximately $10,000 for books, supplies, medical insurance, and living expenses during the academic year. FRCC does not have residence halls; therefore, students are responsible for finding their own housing.
After being admitted, international students must complete the following in order to remain in their classes:
- Present proof of current and adequate medical insurance one week prior to the start of classes, or the student will be dropped from all courses and Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) will be notified. The college has provisions to insure international students under a comprehensive plan. Information may be obtained from the International Student Admissions Officers. If international students do not have comparable medical coverage, they are required to purchase the FRCC medical and health insurance policy.
- Complete assessment testing for placement into courses. This assessment may be taken online in the student's home country. Contact the Testing Center for more information.
- International students must meet with an advisor for academic advising, attend required orientation, and complete payment of tuition and fees with the cashier.
