Winston-Salem State University welcomes applications for undergraduate and graduate admissions from qualified international students. The University values the presence of international students, as these students add diversity and a global perspective to campus life.
As an international applicant, it is extremely important that you apply as early as possible before the application deadline for the semester you plan to begin your undergraduate studies. This allows sufficient time to obtain your official school records, to have your school records evaluated by a Credential Evaluation Service, to arrange for the required examinations, to have your bank send statements of your financial resources, to have your application reviewed, and to secure your visa materials.
Scholarship or loan funds are unavailable at Winston-Salem State University to aid undergraduate international students who are citizens of other countries, and they consider it inappropriate to encourage you to apply if you cannot finance your education. The estimated total cost (including tuition and fees, room and board, transportation, books, incidental expenses, and travel) is approximately $23,000 for the 2005 – 2006 academic year.
