Undergraduate International Admission

How to Apply

1. Review admission requirements.

Most UToledo degree programs require only high school (or university) transcripts and proof of English language proficiency for admission.

The College of Engineering also requires either an SAT Math score or ALEKS placement test score for admission.

Review our Admissions Requirements page for other specific program requirements.

2. Submit your admission application.

You have two ways to apply to UToledo.

Are you coming to college directly from high school or secondary school?

Apply using the Common App.

Did you take a gap year or semester or are you transferring?

Use the UToledo application.

3. Submit transcripts.

Are you coming to UToledo directly from high school or secondary school?

Note: Even if you took college-level courses in high school, you're considered a first-time freshman.

Submit official transcripts or certificates from all secondary/high schools attended. We need your official high school transcripts for each year of secondary school. These are end-of-year grades or certificates, with official examination results, or International Baccalaureate / A Level results. They are typically for grades 9-11 or 10-12, depending on your country or school system.

Are you a transfer student?

Submit official transcripts from all post-secondary colleges or universities attended. Include transcripts from the colleges or universities you attended as a guest student.


 Official English translations from a certified translation company are required for all educational documents that are not in English.

How to submit transcripts

Normally, we accept only transcripts that are sent by school officials. Your high school counselor or a school official can email your official and readable home country certificate or transcript and English translation to international@utoledo.edu.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may temporarily scan and email home country certificates or transcripts yourself. Be sure all emailed documents are legible and of good quality.

NOTE: If you are studying in the U.S. or Canada, we will only accept transcripts sent directly from your high school or college/university to international@utoledo.edu. They also may mail them to:

4. Submit proof of English language proficiency.

Review our English language requirements and submit materials. If you have not yet sent your official scores via the testing service, please email your score report to international@utoledo.edu.

5. Submit additional documents as necessary.

We will notify you of anything else we need to process your application.
