ADMISSIONS CRITERIA AND PROCESS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

It is critical that each applicant has a history of academic and behavioral success. The student must demonstrate adequate English ability, as determined by proficiency testing (TOEFL or the equivalent). Customarily two letters of reference are required, a transcript of prior academic work or a copy of the last report card given, a completed application with the $100.00 application fee paid in U.S. dollars or by MasterCard or Visa. A copy of the applicant’s passport page showing date of birth and a 2”x 2” photo are required along with a copy of a bank statement matching or surpassing the school’s annual charges.

Once accepted all applicants are notified in writing and have a two-week window to respond. An acceptance fee of $3,500.00 is required as well as current completed student health forms and immunizations. Once the fee is received an I-20 application will be provided, if necessary.

Certain applicants, depending on country of origin, may be required to secure a student visa. Students are encouraged to apply for their visa early to best provide ample time for visa processing. Most visa applicants will be interviewed at an embassy or by a consulate. The waiting time for the interview usually varies, so early visa application is encouraged. Visa wait times for interview appointments and visa processing time information for each U.S. Embassy or Consulate worldwide is available at the Visa Wait Times website. Once the Student Visa is confirmed, a tuition statement will be forwarded. Tuition can be paid in two equal installments, the first one in August and the second in January.

Information regarding transfer of monies can be obtained by an e-mail to headmaster@td.edu.

Total charges for 2017-2018 are $48,600 which includes tuition, books, room and board, and fees.

All international students whose parents live outside of the United States must have a designated sponsor. Customarily international students reside in T-D family homes or faculty residences.
