International Students

Charter Oak welcomes students who are non-U.S. citizens or have international academic credentials. As a non-residential college, Charter Oak does not administer the I-20 form for purposes of issuing a student VISA.

Credentials from non-U.S. colleges must be evaluated by a recognized agency prior to review by Charter Oak. The College recognizes the following agencies: Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) and World Education Services (WES). You may contact any of these agencies to learn more about their procedures and fees. The College requests that a course-by-course assessment be completed for application.

If you are a non-U.S. resident or studied abroad, you must submit the following admissions documents:

  • A course by course assessment by one of the following approved agencies: Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) and World Education Services (WES).
  • If studied in countries where English is not the primary language, official transcript from a U.S. institution documenting six semester hours of English Composition with a grade of "C" or above.

In all cases, a student must also earn a minimum of 30 credits for a bachelor's degree or 15 credits for an associate's degree at United States institutions or by testing approved by Charter Oak State College.
