  3. Official high or secondary school transcript/certificate showing completion, with English translation.
  4. Official university/college transcripts are submitted directly to World Education Services for transfer credit/degree evaluation,
    with Century College designated to receive evaluation results.
    • Proof of English proficiency. TOEFL scores must be sent directly from the testing center. Century College’s school code is 6388, and minimum TOEFL scores are:
    • Internet Based Test - 61;
    • Paper Test - 500;

Health Insurance

In addition, newly-accepted students must:

  • purchase health insurance through the college (cost–$1,027.00 USD).
  • visit our Student Health Service office to take the Mantoux test.
  • provide us with information regarding immunizations they may have already received through their own health care provider or clinic.

Financial Aid

International students are not eligible for federal student financial aid; however, they can apply for campus-based scholarships if they meet eligibility criteria for an individual scholarship(s).

Acceptance Process

Once the application process is complete and the student has been accepted for admission to Century College, they will be sent a number of documents confirming their admission which they must use to apply for a student visa at the U.S. embassy in their home country.

The student is also required by USCIS to pay a SEVIS fee in the amount of $200.00 USD.

Assessment

Assessment tests are required of all new students, and are used to place students in the appropriate courses in math, reading and English.

Assessment tests are scheduled regularly throughout the year.

New student orientation

Information on new student orientation is normally mailed out with the acceptance packet. You will need to make a reservation to attend. The orientation flyer will give you step by step instructions to make a reservation online.

Orientation includes a large and small group session. The large group session provides information about the college, resources available and student activities. The small group provides an opportunity for students to meet with a counselor or advisor for assistance with course selection and registration.

Please Note: Before attending new student orientation, you will need to complete assessment testing. Bring your results to your orientation session.

In addition to the general new student orientation session, all F-1 international students will be required to attend a mandatory international student orientation. This meeting is normally held about a few days before classes start. A separate invitation letter will be mailed to you.
