Charter Oak welcomes students who are non-U.S. citizens or have international academic credentials. As a non-residential college, Charter Oak does not administer the I-20 form for purposes of issuing a student VISA.
Applicants residing outside of the United States are required to verify their identity by completing and having notarized the Identity Verification form. The original form must be sent to Admissions at Charter Oak State College.
Credentials from non-U.S. colleges must be evaluated by a recognized agency prior to review by Charter Oak. The College recommends a course by course evaluation be completed by either: Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) or World Education Services (WES).
A student presenting international credentials must earn a minimum of 30 credits from U.S. institutions for a bachelor's degree or 15 credits for an associate degree.
