Admissions Requirements for International Students
Central Maine Community College welcomes international students seeking F1 Student Visa status from around the world. As part of the admissions process, international students are encouraged to submit TOEFL (IBT, CBT, or PBT) scores to the College in order to determine eligibility for admissions to an academic program. Students need a TOEFL score of 530 (paper version), 197 (computer version) or 71 (internet-based) to be accepted to the College. Additional testing may be necessary.
Students without a TOEFL score may arrange to take Central Maine Community College’s ESL Accuplacer Placement Assessment from afar. In countries where English is a primary language, students may provide evidence of substantial program coursework in English.
International students must provide:
- A properly completed Application for Admission and a
non-refundable $20.00 application fee;
- Foreign student financial form indicating sufficient funds to meet educational and living expenses for a minimum of the length of the program;
- Official translated academic transcripts;
- TOEFL score or CMCC Accuplacer Placement Assessment scores
In order for the student to obtain a student visa, the College will issue an I-20 to international students who complete a valid Affidavit of Support, Form I-134, or an approved Certification of Finances Form, verifying that funds will be available for all educational expenses while studying in the U.S. Supporting documentation, such as bank statements, is also required.
