When international students apply for admission in a program, transcripts of completed secondary and applicable post secondary credits are required along with an evaluation by a professional agency and/or translation if necessary. The student is responsible for the expense for this service. These transcripts must include specific dates of school attendance, courses taken during each year of attendance, and grades received from each course. The international student must also provide a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination is required for all applicants whose native language is not English. A minimum score of 80 for the internet-based TOEFL or 550 for the paper-based TOEFL, or 6 for IELTS is required for admission. Applicants who have completed degree programs in English at the college or university level may qualify to have the requirement waived. If this is not noted on your transcript, please request a letter from the registrar at your college or university stating that your language of instruction was English.
For reporting purposes, the ICCI code for TOEFL is 0758 To submit IELTS scores, please contact the test center where you took the test and request that an official Test Report Form be sent to The International College. Visit www.toefl.org or www.ielts.org for more information.
ICCI requires overseas students to have the total amount of one year’s expenses on deposit with the College. ICCI also requires them to have deposited with the College at all times a valid return ticket to their homes or equivalent cash deposit. Overseas students must fulfill immigration requirements for entry and be aware that Cayman Islands law does not permit gainful employment without a Gainful Occupation License (work permit). Overseas students should make certain that all arrangements, academic, financial and immigration matters, have been completed before arriving in the Cayman Islands. Overseas students must be enrolled as full-time students with a minimum of 12 credits each quarter. The prospective student is responsible for applying for and obtaining a student visa prior to registration for courses at ICCI.
