Everest attracts international students for top quality career training. Below are guidelines for our international students. Or, just call your local Everest campus to talk to a representative about requirements.

Admissions

Graduation from high school or its equivalent is a prerequisite for admission to the University. Applicants not completing a secondary program or not having a diploma will be considered for admission on the basis of the General Education Development (GED) test or other equivalency. All applicants are required to successfully complete a standardized, nationally-normed assessment examination. The CPAt (Career Programs Assessment) is administered by the University and is designed to further ensure that the applicant has the skills necessary to successfully pursue a college level program. Transfer students who are high school graduates or GED holders (or other equivalency), and who can submit proof of successfully completing a minimum of 36 quarter hours or 24 semester hours of earned college credit at an accredited postsecondary institution, will not be required to complete the above referenced test. Applicants who have completed the ACT with a score of at least 15 or the SAT with a score of at least 700 will not be required to complete the above referenced test.

Immunizations

It is required that all international students enrolled at the University obtain and provide evidence of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccinations by completion of their first academic term of attendance at the University.

In addition, if an international student has demonstrated a positive tuberculosis test in the past, he/she must provide evidence of a negative tuberculosis test or chest x-ray before completion of the first term of attendance.

Although not a requirement, all international students are encouraged to obtain a tetanus vaccination as well.
