In addition to the general requirements of the University, all international students must demonstrate proficiency in English and meet one of the following six (6) requirements:
Note: The applicant may, at American National University’s discretion, be tested on arrival to the campus using the Michigan Test of Language Acquisition. If test results indicate, American National University reserves the right to place the student in the University’s English as a Second Language Program until sufficient English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills are acquired.
Current policies of the U.S. Immigration Department state that international students must prove that financial responsibility will be met. Once these requirements have been met and the student is accepted for admission to the University, an I-20 will be issued. Upon receipt of the I-20 the student is required to complete the form I-901 and submit a $200 fee to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. These students are covered under the institution’s regular refund policy.
American National University’s Roanoke Valley, VA campus and its Northern Virginia Campus, which operates as a campus addition of its Roanoke Valley campus are non-residential. No housing or dormitory space is provided by the University, nor are there host family arrangements for undergraduate or MBA students. International students will need to secure their own housing arrangements. Check with the Director of International Programs for housing referrals in the local communities.
