In addition to meeting the academic and character standards required of all NSU University School applicants, international applicants for Grades 4-12 will need to demonstrate sufficient English proficiency to thrive in our college preparatory environment. Acceptable standardized test of English proficiency scores include but are not limited to the TOEFL/TOEFL JR, IELTS, PTE Academic/YTE, ITEP Slate, or the SSAT. If an applicant is unable to access a standardized test, our admissions department will assist with alternative options.
Minimum test scores for Grade 9-12 applicants are 70 (TOEFL), 5.5 (IELTS), and 49 (PTE).
All international students must submit original language and translated copies of their grades and recommendations. International applicants for Grades 6-12 should take the ITEP SLATE exam for admissions. Testing sites can be accessed by clicking here.
Applicants for grades 8-12 must submit both original language and certified translated transcripts, beginning with grade 8 through the current grade level. All applicants must submit copies of passport and customs documentation (Visa, I-20, Proof of permanent residency).
A video or personal interview is included in the application process to access verbal English ability and to learn more about the student's interests and goals.
