International Students

General Information

International student applications are not eligible for conditional admission status. International students must meet all qualifications and provide all documents listed on the application packet, including proof of English proficiency such as the required Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score, before they can be issued an I-20 form. Prior to being issued an I-20 Form, International Students must contact the Office of Admissions. Coastal Alabama Community College is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students.

Application Deadline

All international applications must be submitted six months prior to the beginning of the semester for which the applicant hopes to gain admittance. Applications that are not turned in six months prior to the beginning of the term may not be considered for admittance.


Applicants are notified of decisions regarding admission to the College as soon as possible after all required documents are received by the Admissions Office. The I-20 Form and a letter of acceptance for admission will be mailed to each applicant who meets the requirements.
