Undergraduate Virtual College International Students Admission Requirements

All Undergraduate Virtual College International Students must submit to apply for admission to the Virtual College:

1. Undergraduate student application for admission.

*An official transcript is an academic transcript or marks sheet mailed directly from the previous schools you have attended directly to the Registrar's Office at Fort Hays State University. Documents mailed or submitted in any way by the applicant are NOT considered official.

IMPORTANT: Transcripts from all schools attended are required to determine admission only. Fort Hays State University does not evaluate international credentials for transfer of credit. Once you are admitted, you may choose to have your prior international course work evaluated by a credential evaluation company. Fort Hays accepts evaluations from any member of NACES. If you elect to do this process, choose the course-by-course evaluation and have the evaluating company send a copy of its evaluation to Fort Hays State University. Staff at FHSU will then use the evaluation to determine what will be accepted to fulfill degree requirements. Remember, this is NOT an admission requirement; it is only required if you wish consideration of prior international coursework. Fort Hays staff cannot discuss the transfer of international credit until you have been admitted and you have had your coursework evaluated.

5. Language Requirements

You as an international student must meet minimum English proficiency requirements before beginning virtual college coursework at Fort Hays State University. Learn more about our language requirements at FHSU.
*Institutional TOEFL Scores will not be accepted to meet our language requirements.
