If you are applying to study at New College on an F-1 student visa, we will need the following to complete your admission file:

• Official transcript(s) for all secondary (high school ) level study sent directly by the school

• Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) if you are not a native speaker of English. The minimum TOEFL score required for admission to New College is 560 (paper test) or 83 (internet-based test). Scores must be less than two years old, and sent directly to New College of Florida (institution code # 5506) by the testing service. For more information see the TOEFL website.
• Transcript Evaluations and Translations: Transcripts from schools abroad require a course-by-course evaluation—with grade and credit equivalents—by a member service of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (such as Josef Silny & Associates, Inc. or World Education Services). Transcripts provided in a language other than English require a professional certified translation. Translations and evaluations supplement, but do not replace, the original documents.
