At Cooper Union we value the importance of a diverse student body. We attract and enroll students from around the world. Please read below for important information pertaining to international students:
- International students are those who do not hold U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
- International students are not eligible for Federal or State Financial Aid. Instead, please fill out the Certification of Finances form. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request this form.
- International applicants who have studied for less than three years in English are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) to show English proficiency. A minimum TOEFL score of 600 (paper format), 250 (computer format) or 100 (internet-based format) is required.
- All applicants to The Cooper Union are required to submit scores from the SAT exam (www.collegeboard.com) or ACT exam (www.act.org).
- Make sure the name on your passport matches your name on the application, TOEFL and SAT/ACT scores.
- All high school and college transcripts must be translated into English, notarized and sent to The Cooper Union.
- Students on visas (those who are non-citizens or who are not permanent residents) who are accepted to The Cooper Union will be required to file a Certificate of Finances with the Office of Admissions and Records prior to their first registration. The Certificate of Finances must certify that students meet the minimum financial support requirements for resident students. Click here for our student budget guide.
