Undergraduate International Admission Policy

Robert Morris defines an international undergraduate student as any student who is a non-US citizen or a non-permanent resident of the US.

International students seeking admission to an undergraduate program must submit the following:
  1. A completed undergraduate application for admission.

  2. Official certified copies of transcripts from all secondary and post-secondary schools attended. Transcripts should bear the official school seal and the signature of the person issuing the transcript. Students should also submit official certified copies of any post-secondary school diplomas and degrees earned. These transcripts must have grades posted and must be translated into English.

  3. Official scores from the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test. Minimum score required is a total 500 on the written exam, a total 170 on the computer based exam or 59-60 on the Internet based TOEFL exam. Students whose native language is English, are not required to submit a TOEFL score. Consideration to waive the TOEFL can also be given to students who meet one of the following criteria:
    1. successfully completed an ESL (English as a Second Language) program
    2. successfully completed college level course work in English Composition One and Two (or equivalents)
    3. achieved a minimum SAT score of 450 (19 ACT) in the Verbal section

  4. Official report of combined SAT or ACT scores if taken. Preference is given to students who score a minimum combined SAT or 1000 or a composite ACT score of 20.

  5. A completed financial affidavit of support (supplied by RMU) which verifies that the student or the student's family/sponsor possesses all of the necessary funds for them to complete the first year of study in their desired undergraduate degree program. (This includes funds to cover all living expenses and indirect costs from the University). Along with this affidavit, students must supply notarized bank statements and other documents that indicate the exact dollar amounts (in US dollars) that are available to them.
For admission to an undergraduate degree program, students are also required to meet all GPA and other requirements for their desired program. Students should contact the undergraduate enrollment office to inquire about the specific entrance requirements for their program of study.
