Official Secondary School Transcript
Official transcripts are required from each secondary school attended. Your secondary school administrator may submit your current high school transcript by mail or through the Common Application website. Those transcripts not in English must be translated into English by a certified translator. When your first marketing period grades become available, please make sure they are submitted to our office. Official final secondary school transcripts with proof of graduation must be received before enrolling at Emmanuel. Secondary school transcripts must include all courses taken and grades received. National examination results should be included but will not be considered an official transcript alone.
Official College Transcripts (transfer applicants only)
If you are applying as a transfer student, we require official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended, including grades from the most recent semester. All transcripts not in English must be translated into English by a certified translator. It is highly recommended, but not required, to have transcripts reviewed by an official credential evaluator. Please see the following links for official credential evaluators:
Essay or Graded Writing Sample
You may complete an essay with your Common Application or submit a recent graded writing sample. If you choose to submit a graded paper, you may send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your full name and indication that you are an applicant to the College.
Two Letters of Recommendation
Your recommendations should come from your school guidance counselor and an academic teacher of your choosing. If your school does not have a guidance counselor, please request a letter from your advisor or school principal. All recommendations must be written in English or translated into English by a certified translator.
Standardized Test Scores
If English is your first language, we require results from the SAT or ACT. Scores may be submitted directly from the Educational Testing Service or indicated on your official secondary school transcript. If English is not your first language, you must submit an official Test of English Language Proficiency (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report. The minimum TOEFL score of 550 paper-based or 79 internet-based (iBT) is required. The minimum score required on the IELTS is 6.5. A phone interview may be required to verify English proficiency. Non-native English speakers are not required to submit SAT or ACT results, although it is recommended to strengthen the application.
TOEFL code: 9606
CEEB code: 3368
International Student Information Form (for non-U.S. citizens)
Non-U.S. citizens must complete the International Student Information Form to finalize the admission application process. It may be submitted via mail, fax or scanned in an email.
Certificate of Eligibility (I-20) Application Form (for non-U.S. citizens)
The I-20 Application Form must be completed by you and your parent/sponsor and submitted with an original bank statement documenting a minimum of $52,400 U.S. in available funds. The official bank statement must be issued within 12 months of the start date of your program. The U.S. government requires all colleges to verify its students' financial resources prior to issuing the Certificate of Eligibility (I-20) form. This process must be completed to obtain or renew an F-1 visa, or to maintain your current F-1 status. Please submit a copy of the identification page of your passport. Transfer students will be required to submit the SEVIS transfer form.
