*Early Decision is binding; accepted students are committed to attending Wofford College, and must withdraw applications to all other colleges or universities.

Admission Consideration:

  • Complete the Common Application, including the Wofford College section. The application fee for international applicants is automatically waived because of additional external costs associated with applying to college internationally.
  • Submit the School Report form and your high school transcript(s).
  • Submit your official test scores.
    • The TOEFL (minimum score 90) or IELTS (minimum score 7) is required for all applicants whose native language is not English. If a minimum score is not met, a recorded or scored interview may be taken into consideration. We are happy to recommend Initial View or ACTFL OPIc.
    • The SAT or ACT is a requirement for native English speakers. SAT or ACT scores are expected from all international applicants unless students are able to reach a testing center.
  • Submit completed Financial Certification for International Students.
  • While all students who score below the TOEFL or IELTS minimum must complete a third-party interview, we are happy to accept and review recorded or scored interviews from all non-native English speakers.
  • We will also honor requests for informational interviews via Skype or phone with all international students Mondays-Fridays between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm Eastern Time. All interviews must be scheduled in advance.

Scholarship and Financial Aid Consideration:

  • International students will be considered for merit-based scholarships upon review of their application for admission.
  • Qualified international applicants are invited to participate in the International Scholars Program.
  • International students are eligible to apply for the Bonner Scholars Program or the Impact Program. Both programs have separate applications which are included and explained under Scholarship Web Tools.
  • U.S. Citizens attending high school abroad and eligible non-U.S. citizens may complete the FAFSA. In other cases, we are unable to provide need-based aid to non-U.S. citizens.
