International Student Application

The international student application deadline is June 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester.

International Applicant Overview

An international student is any citizen of a country other than the United States who has, or will need, a nonimmigrant visa to study at the university.

International students studying in face-to-face programs at TLU will need a non-immigrant visa to attend courses. Due to the nature of online programs, TLU cannot provide international students with a Form I-20 for international student visas. International applicants interested in online programs will need to participate from their home country, outside the U.S., or form within the U.S., if they have another visa or immigration status that allows for participation.

The merits of each applicant are considered on a case-by-case basis with a special emphasis on the quality of the academic work.
