International Student Admissions

Attending college in a different country is a big adjustment, but also a great opportunity. At PCC, you’ll join a welcoming, Christian environment where everyone you meet is eager to help you feel at home. Entering a new community is a great chance to grow in your faith and pursue a common goal: influencing the world for Christ.

There are a few key differences in the admissions process for international students, including the requirement of the English proficiency language test (TOEFL). If you have any questions, our team of international admissions counselors are ready to help! Give us a call at 850-478-8496, ext. 8788.

Looking for application deadlines? Pensacola Christian College follows a “rolling admissions” policy, meaning we accept qualified candidates as they apply until all available spaces are filled. Even though there’s no formal application deadline, we encourage you to apply at least six months in advance.

After you’ve submitted your application, you can check your application status using our applicant portal.

*Because of federal law, PCC is required to give first-priority jobs for U.S. citizens.

Your Form I-20 will not be sent until PCC has received all of your necessary paperwork and the payment for your first-semester tuition and fees. United States immigration regulations mandate that no international student should travel to the U.S. without receiving his official letter of acceptance and Form I-20.

Pensacola Christian College will be test-optional through fall 2022 because of continuing challenges with access to ACT and SAT testing centers. Therefore, undergraduate applicants are not required to submit a test score for admission. But if an applicant has a score, it can be submitted for evaluation. Please note a test score is needed for the Academic Honors scholarship eligibility.
