International students should allow
a minimum of six months to complete
application procedures. PCC is
authorized under federal law to enroll
nonimmigrant alien students. The
regular application form should be
completed and returned with the Application Fee and Reservation Deposit
to the Director of Admissions. The
application cannot be processed until
these fees are received; all payments
must be in U.S. currency. International
students’ accounts will be charged any
handling fees assessed by a foreign
bank (e.g., transfer funds, etc.). It is
required by United States Immigration
and Customs Enforcement regulations
that international students submit to
the College all application forms, academic
records, test scores, and proof
of financial responsibility before the Form I-20 can be sent. In addition, the College requires international students to submit one semester’s tuition, room and board, fees, and a one-way transportation deposit from the College to the student’s home country before the Form I-20 will be sent.
Non-English-speaking students are also
required to take the Test of English as
a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Have
your TOEFL scores sent directly
from the Educational Testing Service
to the Director of Admissions as soon
as possible. This is done automatically if you specify our college TOEFL number 5970 when you register for this test.
Prospective students should also take
either the ACT or the SAT.
All payments must be in U.S. currency.
International students᾿ accounts will be
charged any handling fees assessed by a
foreign bank (e.g., transfer funds, etc.).
Each semester must be paid in advance.
Pensacola Christian College does
not provide financial assistance for
most international students. Canadian citizens and U.S. permanent residents may qualify for some financial assistance. Under normal
circumstances, the United States Citizenship
and Immigration Service will
not permit international students to
be employed in the United States off
campus to meet their financial obligations.
Therefore international students
should not depend on obtaining
part-time employment to meet their
educational expenses. International
students should carefully assess their
financial resources before finalizing
their college plans.
If the international student is not granted admission, the tuition, room and board, fees, and transportation payments are refundable. United States
immigration regulations mandate
that no international student should
travel to this country without receiving
his official letter of acceptance and
