All students admitted to the program must

  • Have earned a high school diploma, and meet GPA admission requirements
  • Prove that they or their sponsors are able to pay for living expenses and tuition while in the United States

Accepted students will receive a conditional admission to the university, which allows them to advance to regular SOU degree programs upon successful completion of the Intensive English Program (IEP). The procedure for applying to the IEP is the same as for other international students. Application procedures, and an online application, can be found on the SOU Admissions page at All prospective students must submit a completed application along with a $60 non-refundable application fee. Once admitted the International Programs office will issue the student's I-20.
