International Students

The Davidson experience extends far beyond our campus. Each fall, students join our community from dozens of counties around the world. Davidson is committed to building a community that includes the brightest and most curious minds from every corner of the world. Each year, we receive nearly 600 international applications from more than 75 countries. We're proud that eight percent of our community is students from outside of the United States, from a variety of nations, backgrounds and cultures.

Admission Requirements

In addition to the Application Checklist documents, non-U.S. citizens are required to submit the following at the time of application:

  • Results from your TOEFL or IELTS English proficiency exam sent directly to Davidson College. For applicants who are citizens of a country where English is an official language, we will automatically waive the English proficiency exam requirement. We do not offer additional waivers.
  • All international (non-U.S. citizen) applicants are required complete the International Student Certification of Finances (PDF) (regardless if you intend to apply for financial aid) as a requirement for Form I-20.
  • International applicants who wish to apply for need-based financial aid must also complete either the CSS/Financial Aid Profile or the International Student Financial Aid Application (PDF).
  • Once you complete your financial aid forms, please submit them through our Davidson College International Financial Aid Documentation upload form. Alternatively, you can mail them to the Office of Admission & Financial Aid.

Prior to enrolling, all students are required to complete a program of study at the secondary school level (equivalent of a student preparing for university entrance in their own country).

If you have attended college and earned credit toward an undergraduate degree, your application will be considered as a transfer application.

Application Fees

No application fee is required for international applicants.
