International Students

We welcome our international students (defined as anyone who is ineligible to apply for a U.S. passport) and value the richness of diversity in culture and orientation they bring to our programs.

Enrollment Process

For international students, Type I and Type II eligibility processes apply.

Students need a high level of English language proficiency in speaking and writing to integrate successfully into the SIG academic program. A Skype interview may be required. International students are required to provide evidence of their English proficiency through the submission of standardized English language test scores(i.e. - TOEFL™, TOEFL Junior™, ELTIS) or a school transcript indicating a proficient (A or B or the equivalent) grade in English courses.

All international applications must be received by May 15, 2021, as there is limited enrollment accepted per country per campus.

We recommend that students check with their embassy regarding local visa requirements. All payments are due in U.S. dollars and must be received by May 15, 2021.

SIG provides visa invitation letters for international students which is typically used for a B1/B2 visa. Please note that SIG is unable to provide additional advice on acquiring a visa. Please contact your local consulate or embassy for specific visa requirements.
