Due to the impact of COVID-19 and mandatory remote work, please submit all supporting admissions documents to complete your application file electronically to email@example.com. PDF and JPG files/documents are acceptable. Admissions documents sent by mail or courier service that reached the LPS Admissions Office by March 19 were processed. LPS Admissions will collect official documents at a later date.
International applicants whose primary language of instruction is not English must submit official TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo English Test (DET) scores. The minimum scores for consideration are 100 TOEFL IBT/7 IELTS/120 DET. Students sending TOEFL scores should use ETS institutional code 2986 when requesting test scores. Students sending IELTS scores should have official paper copies mailed directly from the testing center to the College of Liberal and Professional Studies Admissions Department. Students submitting DET scores should request that their scores be sent to “The University of Pennsylvania, College of Liberal and Professional Studies.” We will also need an unofficial copy of your Duolingo English Test certificate. Please save your certificate as a PDF and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visa and Documentation
Once admitted, you will receive an e-mail from the International Student and Scholar Services office with instructions for applying for your I-20. The I-20 is the form you need to apply for an F-1 student visa at your closest US Embassy or Consulate.
Tuition and Payment
Once you register for classes, you will be sent a bill notification via e-mail about your tuition and fees, which can be viewed through your account at the PennPay website. Payment is due according to Penn's Student Registration and Financial Services billing and payment schedule and can be made by international wire or bank transfer. If your university would like to arrange third-party billing, they can find more information at Penn’s Student Financial Services website.
