Apply as an International Student

Cabrini University welcomes applications for admission from well-qualified students who are citizens of other countries.

The Admissions Committee acts on an application when all necessary credentials are on file. Therefore, students are encouraged to apply early in the senior year. 

Through this rolling admissions procedure, qualified applicants receive early notification of acceptance.


How to Apply

Follow the four steps below to apply for admission to Cabrini University.

NOTE: Students wishing to apply for admission to the Nursing major must complete the process found here by December 20, 2019.

1. Complete your online or PDF application to Cabrini University.

2. Submit proof of English proficiency. This can be from an English speaking institute or an English speaking exam, for example, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL); the International English Language Testing System (IELTS); or the SAT.

Some applicants will be asked to submit a personal or video interview with an evaluation committee composed of Cabrini staff and faculty plus at least one letter of recommendation from a teacher or authority who can speak to the applicant’s English language proficiency.

3. Submit official transcripts from your secondary school, translated to a course by course evaluation by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Service, Inc. (NACES). For more information, visit naces.orgThis must provide the U.S. equivalency of your credential and the U.S. GPA.

4. Submit your personal statement (250+ words, topic of your choice). You may email your personal statement in Word Document or PDF to essays@cabrini.edu.

Official documents may be emailed by the school to cspencer@cabrini.edu or mailed to:

  • Charles Spencer
    Cabrini University Office of Admissions
    610 King of Prussia Road
    Radnor, PA 19087-3698

Cabrini University will not accept official transcripts sent by the student.

Please note: As an F-1 student, you may take online classes, but a maximum of 3 credit hours may apply to your full-time status fall and spring semester.

This defines as only one 3-credit online course fall and spring semester may count toward your full-time status.

Therefore, undergraduate students who are enrolled in 12 credits must take nine of those credits in regular classroom-taught classes.

Application Timeline

Because it may take several weeks before all credentials are received, prospective international students should apply in a timely manner. 

With the exception of applicants to the Nursing program, admissions decisions are made when applications are completed, on a first-come, first-served basis.
