We're glad you're considering Neumont. Permanent residents and U.S. citizens follow our standard admissions process. Foreign students with a student visa will have a modified admissions process, depending on the type of visa. Students who will need a student visa should apply using the International Student Application.






Credential Evaluation for International High Schools

In order to satisfy the general admissions requirements international students who attended high school outside of the U.S. must provide proof of high school graduation or its equivalent through a NACES credential evaluation service, at the applicant’s own expense. Please note: You will need to authorize the credential evaluation company to send the evaluated documents directly to Neumont after evaluation.


Neumont TOEFL Requirements

Proven English language proficiency is required if English is not your first language. The preferable method of proving English proficiency is official test results of the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Applicants with TOEFL scores of 550+ (213+ computer-based score, 79+ internet-based score) will be considered for admission. In addition to, or in place of, the TOEFL exam, Neumont, at its discretion, may require students to complete a telephone interview in English.


I-20 Visa Processing

After you've been accepted and and provided the necessary documentation to your Admissions Officer, Neumont will create an I-20 for you. You then need to schedule an F-1 student visa interview at the U.S. consulate or embassy and pay $100 for an I-901 application fee. For this interview, you will need your I-20, passport, proof of I-901 payment, and other documents requested at the time the interview is scheduled. If you are granted an F-1 visa, you will be able to attend school at Neumont.
