Applying to Cambridge College

What documents do I need to provide to complete my request for an I-20?    

For applicants to a bachelor's or master's program, prospective students must be admitted to Cambridge College prior to requesting an I-20. In addition, students must provide to the International Student Office the following documents:

Students receiving an I-20 from Cambridge College will be required to complete additional steps to receive approval for a student visa by the Student Exchange and Visitor Program (SEVP).

All master's candidates must also submit:

  • Personal statement:
    • 250-500-word essay describing why you want to study at Cambridge College and why you think Cambridge College is the right fit for you
  • Two letters of reference
    • From a professor or employer which speaks of your qualities as a person, a professional, and/or as a student.
  • Current résumé

Additional documents may be required before a decision can be made on your application.

Can I defer my attendance after I'm accepted?

  • If you cannot attend in the term for which you had initially applied, you may defer your attendance.
  • You will need to contact your Admissions Counselor and submit updated proof of financial capability in order to defer your attendance.
  • If you are transferring to Cambridge College from another U.S. institution, or if you have already arrived in the U.S. on your Cambridge College I-20, you are ineligible for deferred attendance.

After you are accepted, you will need to:

  • Take the Accuplacer placement test.
    • The results of this test in no way affect your acceptance. It simply tells us which classes are best for you to take in your first term.
  • Meet your Academic Advisor to discuss which classes you'll take in your first term.
  • Get your student ID card.
  • Register for classes.
  • Attend Academic Orientation.
  • Attend New International Student Check-in & Registration.
  • Start taking your classes!
