At St. Ambrose, we truly value the unique perspectives and new thinking that international students bring to the graduate classroom. International students in our graduate programs find that small class sizes and a focus on teaching help to foster their academic success. To use that very American phrase, it's a "win-win!" We invite you to explore our graduate programs and begin the admission process by following the steps below.
Learn more about us! International students requiring F-1 visas are eligible to apply for admission to any of our full time graduate programs:
International Student Services will work with the graduate faculty, who will make a decision on your admission. Both offices may communicate with you to request additional documentation, and both offices can assist with queries you may have.
If you are accepted, International Student Services will then send you a personalized Declaration of Finances form. On this, you'll need to confirm how you are able to fund a full academic year here. You need to return this document to us with supporting financial documents, such as bank statements and letters of sponsorship.
Congratulations! You have completed the admission process! If you already have an F-1 visa, you will receive a welcome e-mail which explains how your SEVIS file will transfer to us from your current institution. If you do not have an F-1 visa, you will be sent a welcome packet in the mail that contains your new Form I-20. This will be required for your visa interview.
