International Admissions

The State University of New York (SUNY) Oneonta welcomes qualified applicants from around the world. The college recognizes the intellectual and cultural contributions that international students offer while diversifying our campus. International students are defined as those who currently hold or are seeking F1 or other non-immigrant visa categories authorized to engage in full-time academic studies.

To be considered for admission international applicants must meet the academic standards for admission, show proficiency in English, and certify that they will have the necessary financial support required for each year of study. Additional information related to application requirements and application deadlines can be found on the International Admissions web site.

The following are minimum standards of English proficiency required for consideration:

Additionally, two semesters of community college coursework in good academic standing or successful completion of an accredited ESL program in the US or overseas, with TOEFL waiver are considered.

Students below the minimum English language proficiency scores may be eligible for a provisional acceptance and may be subject to English as a Second Language (ESL) coursework. (see talented students/provisional admission under freshmen admissions)

Supplementary English as a Second Language (ESL) courses are offered on campus, supported by a Language Lab with ESL multimedia software, The Center for Academic Development and Enrichment (CADE), Writing Center, and professional and peer tutoring services.
