International Students: Apply for Admission
You are considered to be an international student:
- If you are not a citizen of the United States
- If you are currently in the United States with a visa
- If you have applied for permanent residency but have not been approved
All applicants who are not US citizens or US permanent residents at the time of application are considered international applicants. If you become a US citizen or permanent resident after you’ve applied to the University of Rochester, you may submit documentation of this change (a copy of your Certificate of Citizenship, Certificate of Naturalization, or Permanent Resident Card) to the Office of Admissions to update your citizenship status. US citizens and permanent residents, no matter where in the world they live or go to school, are not considered international applicants but will be reviewed for admission within the context of their school cohort.
International students should follow the procedures outlined on the pages listed below. These pages include special instructions and deadlines for international students. Before you apply we recommend that you review our special requirements for international students and our international student webpage.
