International Student Admissions Process


International students wishing to study here as an F-1 student must complete the following procedures to be considered for admission.


Step 1: English Language Proficiency

All tests must be sent directly to Grayson College. Students must submit a passing TOEFL or IELTS score, or must have completed ENG 1301 or its equivalent at another institution to qualify for admission to credit courses at GC. Passing TOEFL scores are: paper: 500; Internet-based TOEFL: 61. The IELTS minimum academic band score required is 5.0.

Students who wish to study in our Intensive English Program may do so without submitting TOEFL or IELTS scores.


Step 2: Application

• Fill out the GC International Student Application
• After you have submitted your online application, you will receive an email with a list of documents which you will need to submit.


Step 3: Submit documents together

Mail the listed documents in one envelope to: Grayson College, Department of International Students, 6101 Grayson Drive, Denison, TX 75020-8299

Documents must be sent together in a single envelope. Failure to send materials in a single envelope may result in the denial of a student's application.


Step 4: Notification and visa

You will be notified by mail whether you have been accepted to GC. Once accepted, you will need to obtain an F-1 visa and plan your travel to the United States. Your acceptance letter will include additional information and requirements.


Transfer Students - Additional Requirements

International students transferring from another U.S. college or university must submit a current passport, I-94 card, I-20 form, and transfer clearance form. These documents are required in addition to those that will be emailed after the online application is submitted.

Note: The Transfer Clearance Form must be completed by your current institution's Designated School Official (DSO) by the end of the semester.
