You will find our campus to be safe, yet SSU offers a comprehensive co-curricular life to provide a total college experience.
As the International Student Admission Coordinator in the Office of Admission, Rick Merb will be responsible for receiving your application information and producing the required International documents.
You will be required to submit your final transcripts, both college and high school.
You will need to provide documents demonstrating that you have the financial resources to support yourself for one year at Shawnee State University.
“An official score of 500 (paper-based), 170 (computer-based), or 60 (internet-based), at a minimum, on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or 5.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or 80 on the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) is required for admission to a degree program for students whose native language is not English. TOEFL can send your scores directly to SSU. For TOEFL to do so it will need our code. Shawnee State University’s code is 1790.”

The Center for International Programs and Activities (CIPA) offers many services to our current international students and is actively engaged in helping future students come to SSU.
