Kendall University Admission Requirements

Application & Application Fee א Applications must be completed entirely, printed in ink or typed, and signed by the applicant to begin the admissions process. For undergraduate, a non-refundable $30 (U.S.) application fee is required and must be submitted at the time of application. For graduate, a nonrefundable $40 (US) application fee is required and must be submitted at the time of application.

Transcripts א Request official transcripts from the registrar of each high school and college/university you have attended and have them sent directly to the Admissions Office at Kendall University. Transcript request forms are provided for your convenience. International transcripts will be evaluated in conjunction with published guidelines for each country. Official or certified copies of examination reports and all secondary certificates (e.g. "O" and "A" levels) are required of non-U.S. educated applicants. A final decision on your application cannot be made until the transcripts are received. Transcripts become the property of the university and may be released intra-campus for purposes of academic evaluation and administration as deemed necessary. Transcripts, applications, and other credentials submitted for admission will be destroyed after three years if the applicant does not enroll.

English Language Requirement א If English is not your native language, you will need to demonstrate ability to pursue studies in the English language by passing either the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or MELAB (Michigan English Language Assessment Battery) both of which are given in most countries. All undergraduate programs require a 550 on the TOEFL or an 80 on the MELAB in order to fulfill the English language requirement. The test must be taken within one year prior to admission.

If English is NOT your native language AND if you have NOT been in school since the seventh (7th) grade in a country where the medium of instruction is English such as Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Great Britain, Jamaica, South Africa, or the United States, you must take an English proficiency test in your country and have your scores sent to the university BEFORE YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED INTO THE UNIVERSITY.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! You must present a TOEFEL or MELAB test results prior to acceptance. If you do not meet this requirement, a 'language hold' will be put on your name in the computer. This means that you cannot complete registration until we have a copy of your proficiency scores. (If you were educated in a country such as one of those listed above since the seventh grade, please send us a copy of the names and addresses of the schools you attended, what years you attended, and what the language of instruction was.

Computer & Internet Requirement א Kendall University is a virtual institution located on the world-wide-web. This makes it necessary that you not only have a computer, but also access to the Internet.
