Below is a list of documents that will be required from F-1 students in order to be considered as an applicant. The admissions team may require supplemental materials depending on your personal situation.
Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call or make an appointment with an admissions counselor. We look forward to welcoming you into the transformative academic community here at Sofia. Best of luck!
Earn a minimum of a 3.0-grade point average (GPA) or an average of “B” grades. If required, Sofia will convert your international GPA prior to application evaluation. Please note that some majors require higher GPAs than others.
International School Work and Degrees: All international applicants must provide an evaluation from one of our approved transcript verification companies for any educational work:
Mark sheets/transcripts/degree certificates must be sent directly to WES or one of the other approved companies for evaluation. Once completed, the evaluation must be sent directly from the verification company to Sofia University for review.
International Transfer students are students who have completed university credit at another college or university and intend to complete their new degree at Sofia University.
University credits can be transferred to Sofia University from community colleges/universities (in the United States), and universities outside of the United States. If you have started taking university courses in the United States or at a university outside of the United States, you must disclose this to your admissions counselor. In order to make this determination, our admissions counselor requires that we have your entire academic record before completing your admissions process.
