This page will continue to be updated to reflect resources specific to international students. 

Admit Packet

The International Student Admit Packets include next steps for International Students, including instructions for completing the Declaration and Certification of Finances (DCOF).

Fall 2021 International Student Admit Packet

Declaration & Certification of Finances (DCOF)

Detailed information about the DCOF process and requirements is provided in the admit packets. You can access the DCOF form directly here.

English Language Proficiency Exam

All international students are required to take an English Language Proficiency exam when they arrive on campus. The exam has two parts: writing and listening/speaking. Please see instructions below for each exam.

Listening/Speaking: You will need to take an oral listening and speaking exam as soon as you arrive in St. Louis. You must schedule an appointment time for your exam. Additional details about scheduling your exam will be available in the summer. 

Writing: The written exam is held during international student orientation. It is very important you attend the full international student orientation.

What happens if I do not pass my exam? If you do not pass your exam, you will be enrolled in a two-credit English language course at the Brown School that will meet on Fridays throughout the fall semester. You will not have to pay additional tuition for this course, and the two credits do not count toward your fall course enrollment limits.

International Student Orientation

Save the date for International Student Orientation, scheduled on August 19 & 20, 2021. International students are also required to attend New Student Orientation from August 23-27, 2021. Additional information will be available in summer 2021.

Office for International Students & Scholars (OISS)

Additional information about OISS is provided in your admit packet. To learn more about OISS and the resources they provide for international students, please visit their website
