Limited-Residency Master of Science in Counseling
Accepted international students must demonstrate ability to meet educational expenses while studying at Prescott College for the first year. This is called “financial certification.” Students living in Canada and Mexico are also required to document financial certification. This is the same standard that consular and Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) officers will use to determine a student’s financial stability.
Students should anticipate that they will be required to present documentary evidence of financial support at the time they apply for a visa and again to the CIS when they arrive in the United States. Funds may come from any dependable source, including scholarships, fellowships, sponsoring agencies, personal funds, or funds from the student’s family.
Documentation of personal or family funds should be on bank letterhead stationery, or in the form of legally binding affidavit from CIS. It may be wise to get several sets of original financial documents.Applications from international students are always welcome. International students whose native language is not English must exhibit a competency in the English language, with a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of at least 550 on the Paper-based TOEFL Test (PBT) or at least 80 on the TOEFL iBT® Test exam.
International students must submit official transcripts translated into English to Admissions. International students are also required to have non-U.S. school transcripts evaluated by a professional credential evaluation service. The applicant is responsible for all costs associated with this service. Master of Arts applicants will need to provide Admissions with a general report or basic statement of comparability.

Post-Masters Certificate Programs for International Students
Prescott College is unable to offer the Post-Masters Certificates in Counseling to international students, as the way they are structured does not meet F1 visa requirements.
