Academic Records: Official transcripts of the applicant’s entire academic record in secondary school and college, including grades received each year of study, degree certificates, and examination certificates. Transfer applicants must have been enrolled in and completed 12 credit hours or more each semester and present evidence of a 2.00 grade-point average (on a 4.00 system).
English Proficiency Certification: All applicants whose native language is not English must present proof of English proficiency in the form of test scores on the TOEFL. A minimum score of 500 is required on printed TOEFL, or a minimum score of 173 is required on a computer-based TOEFL. Provisional admission may be granted if the applicant has scored 460 on a printed TOEFL, or has scored 140 on a computer-based TOEFL, and has studied at an approved English language school for a minimum of 12 weeks after taking the TOEFL.
Financial Statement: Before being admitted to Northern Oklahoma College, an international student must provide specific documentary evidence of sufficient funds to cover each year of his/her intended stay. See the Estimate of Expenses. Documentary evidence of financial support must be returned with the application for admission.
Insurance Verification: Because the cost of medical care in the U.S. is usually much higher than in other countries, all international students are required to purchase insurance before registering for classes. Verification of insurance is required.
Deposit: A $5000.00 cash deposit, which includes a non-refundable $25.00 application fee and a non-refundable $15.00 international fee, is required before a student may enroll for classes. This deposit represents payment for tuition, fees, and room and board until deposit is depleted. At that time the student is responsible for any outstanding and future balance. An I-20 will not be issued until the deposit has been received at Northern Oklahoma College. Visa, MasterCard, Cashier's Check or Money Order payable to Northern Oklahoma College are accepted.

Financial Aid: Federally funded financial aid from Northern Oklahoma College is NOT available for international students.
Student Loans: No student loans are available to international students.
Part-time Employment: The United States Immigration laws do not permit an international student to accept employment off–campus unless U. S. Immigration has issued a work permit. If available, part-time employment (no more than 20 hours a week) is allowed on campus if the international student has a social security card.
Students arriving in the U. S. with an I-20 issued by Northern are responsible for their own transportation to the Northern campus. Northern does not have a transit service. Students must have their own transportation.
International students admitted to Northern Oklahoma College must be enrolled and complete 12 credit hours each semester and must carry a 2.00 grade point average (grade of C) each semester to stay in-status. Loss of student status results in a violation of immigration status.
AN APPLICATION FOR PROSPECTIVE INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNTIL ALL STATED REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET.
