In addition to the BFA application requirements, international students living outside the United States must fulfill special application requirements that are outlined in the International Student Brochure.
The International Student Brochure for applicants for Fall 13 will be available for download from this page after mid-January 2013.
International student applicants requiring an F-1 student visa must submit documentation of proficiency in English (non-English speaking countries only), financial means of support and good health.
Students who are citizens of another country, but who hold Permanent Resident status in the United States, may apply to PNCA by fulfilling the application requirements for domestic students. Permanent Residents must include proof of their residency status in their application materials.
English Proficiency Requirements
International student applicants whose first language is not English must prove their English competency level as part of the application process. PNCA allows students to document their English proficiency in one of the following ways:
- Achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 550 paper score or 213 computer score
- Complete a full year of college-level English at an American college or university (numbered 100 or above) with a grade of C or better
Official score documentation sent directly to PNCA Admissions by a TOEFL office is required. Unofficial documentation cannot be accepted.
