How to Apply to an International University in the U.S.A in 2022


The United States has over 250 universities and colleges listed in the latest higher education rankings created by Times Higher Education, US News, and TopUniversities.

Whether it's the attraction of living the American dream, or simply the irresistible idea of finding success in "the land of the free and home of the brave", around 1 million international students choose to enrol at a university or college in the USA.

Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge O Level

Leading universities in the US require Cambridge International AS & A Levels for admissions, but some colleges and universities will accept students with five Cambridge IGCSEs or Cambridge O Levels at grade C or above. Check the admissions policies at individual institutions for more information.

Cambridge International AS & A Level

Over 850 universities in the US accept Cambridge International AS & A Levels, including all Ivy League colleges.

A number of research studies have explored the ability of Cambridge International AS & A Levels to predict ‘college-readiness’ – results suggest that Cambridge qualifications compare favourably with other recognised programmes in the US such as Advanced Placement (AP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB).
Cambridge Pre-U

Recognition of Cambridge Pre-U is growing. All the Ivy League colleges accept Cambridge Pre-U and so do many other leading universities in the USA.
Cambridge AICE Diploma

The Cambridge International AS & A Levels that make up the Cambridge AICE Diploma are welcomed by leading universities in the USA - as shown in the following video, which also explains how the Cambridge AICE Diploma prepares students for university study.

But, how can you make sure that you will be accepted at one? Below I will run through some of the steps and approaches to selecting a university, and making sure that you have what it takes to be admitted.

Prepare to apply

Most universities give you the option to apply directly on their websites.
Be sure to read the requirements carefully when applying to American universities. Some will require standardised tests (e.g. GRE, GMAT, MCAT, LSAT), and others will ask for different documents (writing samples, portfolio, list of patents) as part of the application process.
Most students apply to 3-5 universities to increase their chances of being admitted.
University application fees are usually between 75-100 USD, depending on the university. If you have trouble paying your admission fee, contact the university or programme directly.
Non-US students may be required to supply proof that their English-language skills are proficient enough to attend classes. Be sure to have your TOEFL iBT, IELTS Academic, PTE Academic, or C1 Advanced certificates available.

The US doesn't currently have an application system for all universities. Local and international students should apply directly through the university. Use the links on the university websites, and follow the instructions carefully.

 Language requirements for US university applications

To ensure that you are able to effectively learn and participate in your classes, you will need to show that you have good enough English-language skills to apply for admission to a U.S. university. The minimum scores will depend largely on the programme and the university. Most U.S. universities will accept one of these tests:
IELTS Academic (International English Language Testing Service)
TOEFL iBT (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English)
C1 Advanced (formerly known as Cambridge English Advanced)

Double check the university and programme requirements to see the minimum score they expect from applicants.

 Required university application documents

Different universities and programmes will require different documents. However, these are the items you are most likely to need if you apply to a university in the US:
Transcripts or records of grades (high school and/or university)
Test scores (SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT)
Proof of English-language proficiency
Motivation letter or statement of purpose
Application fee
Writing sample
Passport photo

University application deadlines in the US

If you are applying for an undergraduate (Bachelor's) degree in the US, universities will typically offer two application deadlines - early admission and regular admission.
If you're applying for the fall (autumn) admission, early deadlines will be between October and November, the previous year.
If you're applying for the fall (autumn) admission, regular admission deadlines will be between February and March, the same year.

If you are applying for a post-graduate (Master's or PhD) degree, your American university application deadline will depend on the semester in which you are enrolling (spring intake or fall intake).
If you are applying for the fall admission, your deadline can be anywhere from January to March.

If you are applying for the spring admission, your deadline is probably anywhere between July and September, the previous year.

These deadlines can vary drastically depending on which programme you are applying for or which university you wish to attend. Be sure to contact the programme itself if you're not sure about the correct deadline.
